1. I do not read minds.
2. I need to be honest with myself, too.
3. Even though I do tell plenty of stories, I need to remember that not everyone can understand them…
4. I have friends living outside Davis for a reason. They keep me anchored when the immediacy gets to be too much.
5. I can let go of things. Ideas, old cards, old shoes, old beds. And it doesn’t mean that I don’t love whoever gave them to me; only that I no longer need the physical reminder.
6. People get to know me best when I’m outside my home territory. That’s where my mask comes off and I forget to defend myself.
7. I also can let go of people when the time is right. I can allow them back into my life, too.
8. Sometimes peace of mind is worth more than convenience or money.
9. I do not have to fill every awkward silence.
