she came in through the bathroom window

Aside from my intrinsic antisocial tendencies I have discovered that it can be liberating to make a new friend. They see you for who you are, not who you were.

As far as they know you started existing the day they first met you.

It is true that who you were is part of who you are. but it is like you are a house with many doors and windows and people who have known you for a long long time sometimes only know how to get in through the window. but there are all these other doors to get into the house, doors that they dont know exist.

Going in through the bathroom window is not the best way to get in...and just uncomfortable for all involved.

It can be tremendous to have a fresh perspective from a new person, there is just nothing else like it.

"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed."
-Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
