Familiarity offers a safe space to be transparently clear because when we do go out the door into the realm of performing responsibilities and meeting 9-5 friends, we offer the edited parts- parts that would deem presentable and acceptable. I’m sure there is a level of transparency we hide from even close friends.
Familiarity is a gift to be grounded- to be made sane in the spaces that are constantly changing, constantly barraging, constantly pulling, constantly competing, constantly nagging. It’s where our roots of stability grabs hold of the soil
Where i can be me, just me and only me and still be accepted as me.
