Burning Man


August 25th I wrote:

Fears:

That they’ll leave me here on the playa with no way home. Abandonment

That I have interrupted their lives and they no longer want me around. Annoyance

Theses fears kicked in just about when Burning Man had started. And they tormented me pretty much the entire week until I lost control and stayed in my tent for almost 48 hours sleeping and crying out a lot of intense feelings. I kinda missed the big nights but walked away with more understanding than I can grasp in words right now. However, here is a quick take away I wrote on our drive out of the playa on September 2nd.

Stagnation. On a loop. When do I trust? Who is right?? I struggle to trust myself. Everything feels threatening. But I know I have to take a bit of a leap. I know I can be safe here with them. But there are still stories telling me that I’m too dramatic and too much to handle and as soon as I trust, I am going to loose everyone for above reasons. I keep visualizing myself at 10 years old, desperate for connection. I am stuck there. I can feel and see how my emotions are that of a 10 year old. And it’s really scary to think that trust is what gets me unstuck.
