Whenever I imagine my future, it's not quite clear where it's set. But for some reason it's almost always set with you. And I'd really, really like to get to the bottom of why. We don't really know one another – not that much, not anymore. Yet somehow the thought of you always makes me feel at home. Safe, comfortable and at ease. But if someone asked me why, I couldn't put it to words. So I'm asking you. Is it habit? Influence over the years? Compulsion? Fond memories? How are you so ingrained in me?
Being honest with myself has often been the hardest part of my life. Which is why I try hard to do it regardless of the resistance.
