What you have done in your power, to address a problem, to bend over backwards, to be involved in a solution, is futile when the other person doesn’t do their part. And to recognize this, takes courage.
The older I get, the more life seems to continue backward for me.
I can’t say in certainty if “when you know, you know” exists personally, but I can tell you when something feels wrong in your gut, it probably is.
You fear that no one will be able to unravel your mind to discover your deepest vulnerabilities.
I wanted life to be perfect by the time I was 25. The perfect marriage, the perfect career, all set in place.
