My Awkward Friend


I met a new awkward friend, I’ll call her, “Myself.”

How long will it take for me to get to know Myself?

 Myself is an interesting person. At least, I’d like to think so.

Right when I think I get to know Myself, Myself always surprises me with some new trait that I wasn't expecting.

Then I have to change my theory about Myself and figure me out all over again.

They say you never really stop getting to know Myself. I’m thinking about other people I know, like my husband. I get to know him better and better with each passing day. Do I ever feel like I know him completely? Sometimes, but then I realize that there are so many unspoken feelings and so many little stones left unturned. I need to unearth things with him as we dig and get to know one another.

It’s the same with Myself – she just keeps surprising me. Even though she’s so very close to me, I wonder how long it will take to get to know her.
