Not everyone will understand you if you tell them you need to compartmentalize your life to keep sane and organized. When I go to work, my focus is my job….make sense? Well, I could try to explain it to my younger counterparts until I’m blue in the face, but they do not understand the concept. My personal life is just that. I depend on the people in my personal life to provide the warmth anf trust that we should have in that area. I keep the two quite separate. I have for a while. You live and you learn…hopefully. A certain amount of time is for the focus in a particular area for the duration that I have allotted for a purpose….usually. There are occasional disruptions, but it usually works out as planned. It’s like this…..when engaged in a conversation with another person, don’t you love the feeling that their attention is entirely on YOU and all you say? ahaaaaaaa.
