singing from rooftops!

i am beaming happily.

last night two friends and i went out for dinner. and in the parking lot, one of the attendants looked remarkably like the guy who abused me when i was 15. i saw him, got ready to fight.... and realised it wasnt that dude after all and walked away. we had a perfectly pleasant dinner, chatted and joked. slow reactions as ever, but for the last two hours its been hitting me in waves of happiness that i was able to do that :-)

my god, it feels so stunning to be so unconcerned about him! it was a big jolt actually - i hadnt seen anyone who looked like him in years. and then plonk! this specimen landed before me : and-i-wasnt--sick! yipee! (excuse me while i prance around my room :D)

sure, there will probably be lots more work to do, probably many more lousy patches when i all want to do is drop dead, but oh wow. these bonuses keep me going through those! im so thrilled that too, that i managed to feel furious seeing him. much wonderfulness! tis quite different person from the totally non-confrontational being i used to be...

last year's revelation was being able to be completely expressionless and in control when some dumbasses were joking about csa. two months earlier i wouldve flown at their throats but by then - it was cool. none of the dumb, crude, insensitive jokes brought me down.

and this years is even better! :-) why am i telling you all this? hell - i just feel like yelling from rooftops that im ok. that im so happy!

indeed, i rise, i rise, i rise. oh yes. its a very bearable lightness of being, mr kundera!
