The Space of No Conflict
I have decided I am like the princess and her pea; aware and sensitive to just about everything that goes on inside of me, and there are plenty of peas to deal with. This awareness and sensitivity is a great gift, and with any gift, it can also be a curse.

I think that’s horrible.
