Lately I've been painfully aware of just how much the approval of others means to me. If you've stuck with my writing long enough, you may remember a story of a girl who once told me my shoes didn't match my belt and how I never wore those shoes again. Perhaps I should've realized this sooner.
It's just more obvious now. I can feel it.
When I make someone laugh, I can feel it.
When I disappoint someone, I can feel it.
That's all I have to day. Just some awareness.
