Have you ever been so close to something it was too close? Not the burn your hand on the stove sort… But the more figurative burn your heart up to smoldering ashes and more than a decade later you still can’t talk about it without that feeling of leaving your body behind in nostalgia type of too close.
I’ve been experiencing that with a current topic and specific person I’ve been wanting to write about for some time. Perspective is a difficulty with close emotional subjects. Every time I revisit the past and try to convey my thoughts, my temperature rises, my heart rate thumps and I may as well experience those tremendous emotions all over again.
As the incredible Mr. Darcy says… “I shall conquer this. I shall!”
