Here’s something I’d venture to say is not very individualistic of me…. But fuck it. I need people. I am irrationally and emotionally attached to the people in my life. And this attachment happens quickly, malheureusement.
If you are fortunate enough to be in my life stably, that means I NEED YOU.
Even though you may be an individualist…. NEED people, or you will become a recluse. Being a happy recluse means you put up walls and block people out intentionally, for your own good, and not anyone else’s. Well good for you, you’ve made yourself DISPENSIBLE to others. A suggestion: think of others.
Here’s something else. If you are going to be one of those people to me and wreak havoc on my life and my heart. Get out. I don’t need you, if you don’t need me in some way.
The people in my life are invaluable, I wouldn’t trade people for things any day. And if that makes me dependent clingy helpless absorbed disciple, then fine. I’d rather be that than alone.
