A few days ago, a friend of mine commented that I’ve been backsliding lately. I told him that I know myself well enough to know that everything with me is just a phase. He said, “That’s impressively self-aware of you, Laurie.” I insisted that the phase thing was true and he said, “Oh, no, I know. I’ve seen you through several of them.”
It’s a mixed blessing when people know you well.
As far as life, I wish sometimes that someone would just write me a prescription. Or perhaps a how-to manual.
