Here are the things that are hard.
Using my voice.
Using my voice and making it loud enough for you to hear.
Using my voice, making it loud, and trusting that you will notice me.
Being noticed.
Trusting you to notice me, and look at me, and see me for who I am.
Trusting you (I don't)
Florescent lights.
Wide open spaces.
Eye contact.

Here are the things that are not hard.
Being clean.
Chicken soup.
Dark time.
Sitting outside in the quiet dark time, breathing in cold air and second hand smoke.
Sitting outside on a concrete step.
Sitting outside, with you.
