Ah...

My last t...

Used to lean in when I was hurting. I would always look down... Can't look at anyone... But he would look straight into my eyes. Empathetically. Like he was... There with me. Willing to be there with me in my pain. It was too much for me. I needed to back off or squirm away or whatever... Change the feeling. Was the only thing I could do. Say something. Change the subject.

Maybe if I was little I would have thrown my arms around his neck and clung to him (it would have been okay for me to stay there and feel it because he couldn't have seen my face) but as it was... Things felt too intimate or something somehow...

But it helped. That he was willing to do that. Even though I couldn't tolerate it.

Don't know if that makes sense. And I'm not sure what it was about. Maybe it is similar... I don't know.
