Don't burst my bubble!

Fans of Seinfeld may remember “The Bubble Boy” episode, where George gets into a fight with a man living in a plastic bubble over the correct answer to a Trivial Pursuit question.

I’ve been thinking of myself as living in a bubble lately -- only in a good way. Mine is a protective Zen-like bubble that I’ve created for myself to avoid stress, conflict and anything else that causes me grief. Inside the bubble, I feel calm and safe.

I know it’s not realistic to live your life in a bubble. But right now it feels right: it’s what I need to do to take care of myself.

I think I’ll stay here for awhile.
