Have you ever wondered if you were depressed or if you were just a lone wolf that enjoyed howling out the moon once in a while? I wonder these things about myself all the time and I’m at the dating point of my life where wasting someone’s time is not something I want to do. Finding someone who is okay with how I am hardwired is not very easy, so being upfront about my capabilities is most important, as I don’t want to come off as a jerk.
In past relationships, I did come off as a jerk, and that’s because at one time I thought I could be a normal person. When I asked for what I wanted or for my needs to get met, even though I loved the other person and vice versa, they didn’t understand what it was I was asking for. And besides being very difficult for someone else to actually wrap their brain around what I’m asking for, it’s also hard to say out loud, without offending the other person by saying “I LOVE YOU, but I just want to be alone……….for almost all of the weekend besides Saturday night, even though we both have the whole weekend off.”
That just doesn’t go over well……and it only gets worse the more you ask. Once in a blue moon, it’s okay for a person like me, but too much of it, and all of a sudden I’m worn down, feeling like I’m barely swimming above water.
If you’re like me and feel this way too, don’t ever let anyone make you feel terrible or guilty about the way you are. You don’t need to be fixed and don’t let the internet or anyone else tell you that either. We’re here for you if you need us and this piece of bad poetry was written just for you.
