Do other people spend as much time as I do trying to figure themselves out? Why do I do things? I think about that constantly.
For example, I am working hard at learning to throw things out when they don’t serve anymore, but I hate waste. I feel proud when I wear socks I’ve darned or clothing I’ve patched. Other people seem to think it’s shameful. There has to be a reason for it. Since my sibs don’t seem to share my perspective, I guess it’s more nature than nurture.
People are built differently. Willow notices things- to the point where she finds it exhausting. I miss things. They call me Oblivious Woman. Possibly that’s because my attention is always turned inward. That implies that this trait may be rare. I don’t know.
