    some more of your thoughts.

    The situation I'm embarking on is quite unique, and special. But I'm definitely taking to heart your words about internal dialogue. And I'm definitely trying to be Zen about the whole thing. As hard as that is for this Type A cubed person! Because what is happening is SO extraordinary--not any scenario I ever imagined--it makes it doubly hard to remain calm. And yet ever more important to do so.

    Sorry to be cryptic...this is way more than I planned to say anyway. But I just keep remembering to breathe. And, as you point out, if I convey the person that my friends know...well, I think I'll be just fine.

    Thanks, Da Dawei. I will keep you posted, although I will have to be MOST cryptic when I do. I'm actually an extremely private person!

      Don't share any more than you are comfortable.  Just remember, the other person is just a person, nothing more, nothing less.  They are flawed, moody and probably stinky from time to time, just like the rest of us.  

      Best of luck to you!

        "Flawed, moody, and stinky..." What a great way to keep perspective! But me? I'm always polished and perfect! ;-)

        Thanks, Da Dawei.
