I feel great today and I have a sneaking suspicion it’s partly because the roommate who started flirting right when he found out I broke up with my ex moved out. I feel like roommates being off limits is a golden rule most people understand, but sadly not everybody. I just feel more comfortable in my home and I’m officially starting to notice the mess the place became while I was living under a mental fog. I hate conflict and I’m annoyingly willing to push myself into a dark little hole in the world to avoid it instead of enforce my boundaries.
It might be time to restart that feelings journal I was doing before. It’s maddening that I can tell how somebody else feels so easily and adjust my behaviour accordingly but I struggle so hard to understand my own emotions.
