Days In The Life Of...

Isn't it amazing? Pertaining to the previous post, as I moped around wondering why I was even here blah, blah, blah, my brothers here confronted me for withdrawing and not speaking about what was bothering me. So, I told them and we had a huge discussion about gender roles and differences in our cultures and it bridged that gap between us. I mean, it didn't solve some of the big fat hairy issues but at least we heard eachother and I promised to be better at talking about my struggles instead of hiding. So, in the end, it becomes about friendship and doing what's necessary to keep that friendship from failing. We learned from eachother and will continue to do so as long as we are in eachother's lives.

Sigh...sometimes I can't believe how much we're alike and how much we're so different at the same time!
