Finally had the chance to do some reality testing with a friend and colleague about some stuff that's been a bit both a bit unsettling having to do with personal perceptions and talents. He on some level apparently was already aware of what has been going on for me, though not in the detail I had to share with him. He was not surprised, nor in turn was I surprised by his lack thereof.

He basically confirmed my experience as both sane and yes, initially disturbing, if not altogether frightening, then shared some of his own, which have been of similar ilk. Like many of the friends outside my profession I have confided in, he spoke of the need to both shield myself in part by distancing myself emotionally from them, although how to do that, is not yet clear to me. He's a bit more along in his own process of learning how to assimilate his perceptions as hes been aware of them since the late '90's. My awareness of these things only began a bit over a year ago.

I now have a handful of resources to call upon to try a reach a greater understanding of how to nurture and perhaps more importantly, make peace with my experiences and come to accept them for the gift in reality, they are.

At least, I think they are.

I lifted this from Sam's live journal; it just so appealed to the little kid who studied geography in me!

I'm trying to get all my Livejournal friends' locations plotted on a map - please add your location starting with this form.
(Then get your friends to!)
