I should be clear about just where I'm at in life on an external level. I still live in the home I grew up in. And I don't have any career trajectory to speak of. These are things that I've been delayed in being able to pursue. I can see the beginning stages of moving towards them taking shape, but it's still very nascent. It has been difficult to watch my friends grow in aspects of their lives that I feel I've been inhibited in. But I understand that this is simply part of my life, and the lessons I'm meant to learn.
On the flip side, my time has been spent cultivating a vast reservoir of inner strength that has carried me through the challenges I've had to face. I've been able to learn about the inherent value and richness that life holds, even when things seem very confused. I find that because of the insights I've gained that I am able to connect with people on fairly profound levels. I am very grateful for this ability. And, despite having already fostered the growth of these qualities, I somehow sense that I'm still only scratching the surface. Exciting!
So, externally, I'm still working towards a greater level of independence. It is taking some time, but I'm getting there. But if you place a high value on what is inside, the intangibles, then I think you'd find I have a lot to offer.
*Please know, also, that I am on this website in order to connect with people who intend on getting together sometime. It is much more fulfilling to chat in person. So please only write if you feel the same way.
