I've started doing CBT over the phone with a therapist!

“You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
“They called me the hyacinth girl.”
—Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.
Oed’ und leer das Meer.

In the past when going places I talked to random people. On several occasions we kept talking. I don't do this too often obviously because SA but yeah. Downside is a lot of times you're left second-guessing yourself, wondering if you came off as an idiot or crossed a line or shared too much. But when feels good, it feels good.

Yesterday I walked around the street market (I was supposedly working, but I'd say I was just helping a bit and testing myself a lot) and talked to quite a few people, some I've sort of known for years, some I had never talked too. It took it out of me, left me exhausted, but I think it was good.

Flowers will grow from these wounds.

I wracked up the courage to ask a co-worker for a ride. I think she was as nervous as I was, so I just kept talking and trying to be helpful. I hope i made a good impression.
