it’s okay that my feelings are hurt after being vulnerable/revealing and not getting a response.
it is hurtful.
but this isn’t a reflection on me, even if it doesn’t always feel like my feelings are appropriate. could be something that got lost in the shuffle of a busy day, could be a shortcoming on the receiver’s part, could be anything, but it is okay that my feelings are hurt right now.
i took a risk. that’s important. and it is important to stay intact when those risks don’t pan out the way i’d like. it’s not a reflection on me.
just feeling down and trying to talk myself through it.
