My HEART had a massage this week.
Someone described me by saying “She gets PEOPLE fatigue” (describing my way of engaging fully socially and then clandestinely retreating back to my own space and pace).
Game changer. Bloody damn GAME CHANGER!
It’s one thing to know something about ourselves. It’s another to know that someone else GETS it!
I mean, isn’t that what we all want? A gentle voice mirroring back to us those beautiful words “it’s okay”.
Okay to be weird
Okay to different
Okay to go at a pace that isn’t exactly textbook, but a pace that feels right just for us?
I must tell you, it’s just lovely.
Just so lovely when one heart bows to another in a simple Namaste-style salute that says “You’re weird. But, gosh, so are all of us!”
