Is anyone else intimidated by SD?
I am an anxious person. If I am talking to someone and I notice them being bored/distracted in anyway, I clam up. I can't open myself up easily to people who I think don't want to hear what I have to say. It feels painful.
Now I manage this ok in my adult life, I let the other person do much of the talking as I know they don't want to hear what I have to say, they are on of those people that talk "at me' rather with with me. That's fine. It just means I cannot be myself around them for fear of rejection.
The problem with this is I have had this happen with SD13 time and time again. If I asked her anything it will be responded to out of politeness, sometimes she acts like she doesn't hear me. As a result, I am literally scared to talk to her because one bitten twice shy. I don't want to be rejected time and time again, yet I don't know how else to have a relationship with her. As a result, I pretty much am in fear around her...I get frozen in panic.
I'm a grown woman and scared of a 13 year old. I know. Ridiculous.
