How do I break? How do I give people the benefit of the doubt without regarding their intentions as tainted and malice?
Remember when my roommate Emjay said "I am a rock. I am an island." and we told her "No! You are not alone. If you are an island, then we are all islands in a little cluster. An arpeggio." But are we really? It's so much easier to be alone and not have to depend on others to exist. Especially when you live in a constant state of questioning others' intentions.
Sigh, I am my father's daughter. Silver linings are hard to find in this book.
