I often have trouble with balancing a middle ground. When I have the boundary provided by professional distance I communicate well, and I’m fine with people that I’m very close to. But when there’s a middle ground I often falter.
I’m never sure how much to ask, how much to share. I have a lot of switches and not a lot of dials. I tend to view trust and openness as binary; complete or absent.
I know there’s a middle. I’m exploring it. Slowly, but nonetheless.
