A quote from Lafayette Reynolds, True Blood, “Lost Cause” (S07E05)

"Has it ever occurred to you that maybe Lafayette, the Queen that make all you white heterosexuals laugh and feel good about yourselves, has it fucking ever occurred to you that maybe I want a piece of happiness too?!"

I had two customers tell me yesterday that they came to my lane specifically that day because they were hurting and needed to spend a moment in my presence, to have me listen, because I understand and care and they don’t feel awkward telling me things. One even asked for a hug afterwards. These are women— it’s always women— who I don’t even know from Eve.

But I’m used to this. I am a sensitive soul. I see people. Perceptively, intuitively, deeply. I can read the dance of withheld emotions across a face before the owner of that face hides it with a forced smile. I can hear the subtle creak in a too-tired voice that belongs to someone who wishes she could stop running for just a day.

And what I do when I hear these things, see these thing, feel these things, is I invite those suppressed souls to express, if only for a moment.

I am glad to do this. I am most satisfied when I can serve in this way.

But that invitation doesn’t usually extend to myself. I cannot hold up a mirror and serve as confessor. I can feel, oh can I ever feel, but there usually is little relief for me afterward. 

I am raw, and I am so easily overwhelmed. I love others so easily but find it so hard to love myself.

I’m not sure if I simply don’t have a strong grasp of what it means to love one’s self. Is it fixing things, making them “better”? I don’t make things better for these women, only slightly easier to bear. How can I ease my burden?

And immediately following my reply I burst into tears and cried for a while. So hard to feel worthy of appreciation sometimes.

Ok just a little distracted by how much this looks similar to JD Nicholas in the 2nd verse of the Commodores’ “Nightshift” video.
