Don't know what to say
Friday, August 15, 2008

A lot of people have been asking how I'm doing. I don't mind the asking, not at all, but it can be problematic sometimes when you don't have the words, or can't get them out. Often I don't know what to say, and when I do the words kind of lock up inside me. I've probably seemed mostly unresponsive and I feel bad that anyone might feel locked out of my life.
So I've made this. I like to hope that it might communicate what I can't. I don't know that it's perfect, but it feels mostly right.
Could be that it only makes sense to me, but here is how I'm doing.

Darlin', never met ya, but I've encountered your posts here, and you're somebody special. I'm worried about you, and I can only offer 2 thoughts:

" When ya can't walk, ya crawl. And when ya can't Do that, you find somebody to carry you."

and Spider Robinson's Non-Reciprochal Principle. " Shared joy is multiplied. Shared pain is divided."
We're yer fellow browncoats. We're on your side. Anything we can do to help, we will. Just ask.

Rose, I met you at the last Dragon*Con. During that time I found you to be intelligent and absolutely charming. Also, you were full of life. Please do not allow yourself to lose these qualities because of these dark times.

Of course, I do not know the particulars of what you have been through. But you have clearly suffered great pain, and it is correct that you feel grief and even anger over this. It is part of being human. We all experience this, at one time or another.

However, I hope that you can move past this, and find joy again. You are a young woman with a lot of life left to live. Many possibilities await you. Know that you are in charge of your life.

You have value in and of yourself. You are more than someone's girlfriend. Please do not allow yourself to be defined by someone else, especially when that other person may not be a safe guardian for your heart or soul.

You have many friends who would like to help you, but they may not know how. When you are ready, seek them out.
