I don't know what to say. I'd argue that some of this doesn't relate to me, but I know it's just the characters in the novel. It is so razor sharp in the points it makes. I am stunned in a beautiful way. But the one thing I have to agree with Norin on is the loneliness. I've been doing this longer than in my former self, and I do have to say, it's easy to slip into denial and pretend happiness. I'm happy to be me. But the loneliness is deeply painful. And people won't even tell me the truth about why they dont' have me over. Like they all have to live in a fantasy about me, how they're kind. It's the lies that come with the loneliness. Thank you, Aimee. I just want to reach out and hug Regina.
