uuughhhhh…i hate this

Hard conversations are…hard. No matter how many times I think I’ve gotten good at saying the difficult things over the years, I’m constantly reminded that this is not something I’m really good at. I try to be, and I want to be, but…I’m really not. My problem, I think, is that I worry too much

do I need a Person?

Anyone who watches Grey’s Anatomy knows what a Person is. For those that don’t, your Person is the one you call when everything is wrong, or right, or you just plain need someone to talk to. You can always count on your Person to welcome you even in the middle of the night and you
