Dear Dean Dad,
Your ability, when talking about something very foreign to my life experience, to turn a phrase which suddenly illuminates for me a problem or obstacle I’ve set up for myself never fails to amaze me. "Cosmic Ingrate." Exactly.
I feel like a cosmic ingrate.
That’s actually extremely helpful to me, to articulate that feeling. I didn’t have a name for it and so I didn’t know how to address it in myself.
