ruthless compassion
06 November 2006 @ 11:54 pm
I'm having a very rough couple of weeks, unusually for me, and I'm trying to figure out what the best approach is to dealing with both the problems I'm having and the resulting emotional upset. Unfortunately, I can't talk about the emotional stuff here until I've talked about it with someone in person, because my epiphany at Twilight Covening was that I need to deal with my emotional reserve (i.e., stop being so emotionally reserved), and part of that means actually talking about my emotions with real, live people, even though that's infinitely scarier than posting it here and hoping to get strokes via comments. Anyway, since I haven't talked with anyone about this in person, yet, I figure I'll focus on some of my good bits from the weekend:

Saturday evening had a dense concentration of fantastic, with a low-key party hosted by three extremely nifty people and attended by lots of other nifty people. High points include the moment where I was surrounded by three incredibly attractive men having a fascinating and geeky conversation about how the brain may or may not work, getting several enthusiastic and completely unexpected compliments and great conversation from a gorgeous redhead, and a handful of really fantastic kisses, both from familiar kissers and new ones.

Even when I'm having a rough spot, it's good to be able to bring to mind and appreciation the amazingly great parts of my life, of which there are so many that it isn't even effort to think of some. That's a wonderful thing, and one to be greatful for.
