Ink on paper, 8×10
Isn’t this exactly, just exactly what we all need, in the end? What we all want?
For the past few weeks, I’ve been listening to Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking, as an audiobook, following one of Brené Brown’s audiobook, and thinking a lot about this particular quality.
I feel now that all of the times I have felt misunderstood stem from this very feeling of not being seen, not being perceived accurately. Not being seen the way I want to be seen, or not being seen fairly. I don’t think this only applies in romantic relationships. I think this is a basic human need. The need to be truly understood… and accepted.
Vulnerable feeling, being seen.
