The interior life

Once again with the headspace: I would rather talk about geopolitics than about how I feel. I would prefer to ask searching questions about computer technology than ones about my motivations. There’s a comfort in knowing that I can hold a table full of people’s attention on the matter of effective household composting but fail to recognise in others how they might be feeling.

It also means I don’t have to listen but just talk.

It also means I believe that I always have the answers and rarely say ‘I don’t know.’

What’s more, I know I do this but I cannot accept that this is right. Knowing it is not right makes it difficult to move on (let go does not capture this at all) because feeling these ways makes me uncomfortable.

Sometimes there is just no now. Or now. Or now.

  1. Sweetheart, I hate to be controversial, but my Hubby’s exactly the same. I can walk around all day with a face like a smacked arse and he’ll never notice that something’s wrong. I think all this makes you male, not anything worse! And you’re probably a hundred times better than most as you are aware you do it! x
