Human, all too human*. This has been my constant refrain for the past 6 or so months. Wish it weren't the case and that I could just be a pre-evolution Cylon; but a Toaster I am not. As Starbuck would say, "Frak it!" (I totally geeked out there--all apologies.)
Really though, why does it all have to be such an uphill struggle sometimes? Why can't we (or--truthfully--I) just tuck away the B.S. from the past and approach new things with soft hearts, willing souls, and ready minds? I know, I know...without the past we learn nothing. And, thus, I suppose this time of my life is simply an opportunity for me to learn way too much (it certainly feels like that).
Again--Human, all too human.
