Clothes and toys, recipes and jokes, advice and prejudice: we all have to handle all sorts of hand-me-downs every day. Tell us about some of the meaningful hand-me-downs in your life.
MEN. I seem to always attract men women have torn, tattered, ripped, destroyed and cast aside. By the time I inherited them there is no way to mend the damage. So badly wounded they are closed off, emotionally unavailable, hesitant, and the walls are high, so high no crane is long enough to reach. Fearful of love, of any kind of closeness I find myself having to remove the stain of myself and walk away. I’ve met some incredible men but the rents are beyond repair, so much so they don’t even know how to repair what might very well be irrevocable damage.
