I am brought to tears quite often when I think about how wonderful my life is and how great I have it. The suffering of the world is difficult for me to understand and I work relentlessly to try and offer any bit of healing I can.
I am one of the easiest people in the world to talk to according to my friends, dates, and exes. I didn't realize that some people have a difficult time carrying on a conversation until a recent date told me. I think the secret is being comfortable with yourself. I have worked really hard at learning to love myself and embracing all parts of myself. I do not compartmentalize any aspects of my identity.
I am typically drawn to people who seem to live with an open heart in spite of painful experiences. I am learning how to receive joy, happiness, and love. After all, how does it get any better than this?
