I believe our understanding is "at hand".

I love the feelings that arise in me when I read anything from you.

Mark,

This friend is not going to leave you! I need you as a friend because of all my failures and problems. You seem to understand me better than I do.

I hope I can be as much of a friend to you as you are to me. Please don't push me away. I NEED YOU!

Ken

Roger: Thanks for the kind response. I appreciate our chats.

Dan: The thought that what I write would evoke anything in someone is a bit daunting ... but you say you love the feelings that do show up - so I thank you for your kindness.

Ken: I don't mean to push people away, it just seems to happen. But PLEASE KNOW THIS - I value our friendship greatly. You are a kindred spirit in many ways, and I recognize your desire to be a friend. I've just never known how to deal with true friendship. But I am trying. Also, believe me when I say I need you as much as you need me - after my recent losses, I need you even more. Our friendship deepened at Outward Bound, and I treasure that so very much.

That was truly from the heart, Mark.

I hurt too when I consider the thoughts of that poem, Mark. I've had people drop out of my life or walk away. That's why I say it's from the heart. I've been down that road, and relate to how this feels.

Abandonment hurts. Rejection hurs on many levels. That is why it hurts so much because it is personal.

Love ya

i've decided there IS a way to not have it hurt. and that's don't expose yourself to the danger in the first place. if i can keep myself guarded against the initial connection, then there's no way to get hurt when it breaks - cuz it isn't there in the first place.

so i'm thinking maybe that should be my new strategy for life.

if i'm lucky, maybe it will work better than the other ones i've tried that all involved allowing others to hurt me over and over.

and if i'm wrong, it's not like it do any more damage than what's already been done.
