Late Night Thoughts

child red hair pix              It just occurred to me how vulnerable humans are–physically, but even moreso  emotionally. Maybe emotionally is not the right                       word–I mean sensitive to slights, to being discounted (a word I learned in psychology),  ignored,  being made fun of, mimicked,   belittled. Perhaps all these terms refer to the same thing: vulnerable to being hurt. Is anyone impervious to being emotionally hurt?   Some have a stoic front, counter-aggressive, hardened defenses.  The image that  comes to me is of one with a shield which “slings  and arrows” bounce off of.   I’ll have to think some more on this.         (Photo Pixabay)

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
