I was doing this silly survey and this question totally knocked me over…

Q: What is one thing that people do not understand about you?
A: That no matter how much I love you, I will always push you away.  The intensity and fierceness of my love is scary, even to me after all these years, so I feel like I have to shield you from it so I don’t destroy you.  Whew…  Glad I got that off my chest.

Simple, but true.  If I could have explained it that way years ago, or if the explanation made people truly understand, I can’t imagine how much easier my relationships would be and how many times I could have spared my friends’ feelings…
