Initiating Relationships? What?

On this, day 120, Beattie writes, “HEY! GET YOU SOME!”

No. She didn’t write that. I made it up. She DID write about relationships, and how we can initiate them without falling victim to dysfunctional situations. And I sorta maybe kinda if not entirely skipped through most of the passage because – as I was just telling my sister today – the thought of dating anyone right now makes me extremely, extremely nervous.

Weirdly, it’s for the reason Beattie’s writing. So, it’s a conundrum: You can’t date anyone because you’re afraid of what might happen; you never know what might happen unless you try. And I think I’m getting to the point where I maybe could, as long as I could become invisible the instant it got awkward.

I know, I know, you’re thinking, “POSITIVITY!” and I’m right there with you!… except I’m not. Beattie says, “INITIATE!” and all I see is “OMG AWKWARD!” and I really don’t know what the problem is. And so many well-intentioned people (my youngest sister! my grandma! the world!) have tried to tell me who I should date or where I should go so that I can meet a person who I should date and it’s just. so. overwhelming.

I’ve been thinking lately that I’m going to meet someone in the most random of places (like when I throw out the trash) but that’s probably because I am, at heart, a writer and I think largely about these things (I guess that means I should write them down too, eh?).

P.S. God, if you have any compassion for me at all, please don’t let me meet someone while I’m throwing out garbage. Thanks.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    May I simply say what a comfort to discover a person that genuinely understands what
    they are discussing over the internet. You
    certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. More people should look at this and understand this side of your story.
