We are all interconnected, they say, with just six degrees of separation between one person and the next. It’s akin to a grid connecting us all, linking us to each other. It includes our friends, our family, our loved ones. It can be a safety net that catches us when we tumble.
The web can also be claustrophobic and choke you, make you feel like the world is caving in and you don’t have the space you need. Worse it makes you feel guilty for craving for some space.
Finding the right balance is the tightrope walk, you make your own path, no one can take you the whole way. Along the way might be scattered the remains of the expectations and remnants of friendships that couldn’t survive the truth.
