This morning while I was getting ready I pulled two black socks out of my dresser drawer. I'm looking at these black socks trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with them.
Turns out it was an ownership problem. One was mine, one belonged to Justin. Then my brain thought, emotions are like "black socks in different sizes." They can look and feel similar, but they all have different owners. Is this my black sock? Is it his? Does it belong to Sally down the street?
While I'm rummaging through my drawer looking for the mate to this sock, I contemplated wearing Justin's black sock. I tried the sock on for size, it was uncomfortable and bulky in my boot, because it wasn't mine and it wasn't made for me to wear.
I took off his sock and put it in his dresser because this sock did not belong on my foot or in my dresser. Just like a sock that isn't yours, emotions that aren't yours, are also bulky and uncomfortable.
Bottom line wear your own damn socks, the ones that were made for you. Keep your emotional space clean and free of other people's socks.
