For whatever reason, I've been continually off-kilter emotionally of late. Intense feelings that get attached to the wrong things, or nothing in particular. At this point, I've concluded that it's relatively harmless so long as I don't fixate on it. I'm doing OK and I know it; there's just something in me that persistently tries to convince me that I'm not. Just as a pilot sometimes has to fly on instruments only, right now I need to navigate life based on what I know rather than just what I feel.
Erick and Melissa are coming over tonight for dinner. I really enjoy having people over more often (and have been looking forward to this for a while); it's just challenging to balance, and I struggle with my desire to be a hermit as well.
