Don’t Apologize for Wanting Respect!

I’ve had some time to think over this holiday break, and I’ve come to several conclusions: yes, there is drama in my life, and yes, I am complicated because my brain doesn’t work like most other people’s brains do, and yes, I do try too hard in my interactions with the opposite sex, but in spite of all of that, I’ve learned that some of my man issues stem from me expecting to be respected and treated like an equal.

Keep your fingers crossed. I’m not good at brevity. Continue reading JWC Day 11: Strong Feelings
