'Cause it's always been a matter of trust

And, at the moment, I'm not sure I trust myself.

That's exaggerated for effect, but there should be truth contained in an exaggeration.

I feel I've been mis-reading people a lot lately, so I make jokes that fall flat, or I say something that unnecessarily annoys people, or I completely miss the point. Maybe I've been too wrapped up in myself to really "get" other people's situations right now, to read them properly. So I get worried and self-conscious about how I'm communicating, and I have to struggle more to communicate. Vicious cycle, yes?

On top of that, something I'd hoped to do tonight didn't happen, at least not for me. To be sufficiently cryptic, I could've done this thing had I shown up early enough. I didn't. Oh, well. But dwelling on that means I'm staying overly wrapped up in myself, and I know that's part of the problem.

Yeah, I'm feeling a little needy right now.

May we all feel better. (I can still be positive. It's worth the effort to get back to being positive.)
