I had a flash while my tea was brewing that has given me an new perspective on my continued political involvement.
I was wondering why I often choose solitude. I have formed few strong bonds with anyone in my life. I choose between the dull pain of loneliness and the wrenching pain of rejection or betrayal. All I know of human relationships is seen from a permanently broken heart.
People tend to get stuck in patterns of behavior. I have often wondered why I continue to be involved in politics even though it is so heartbreaking… it is all I know.
