Going alone through the hard things is a fools errand. I suppose that’s a little riff on the ideas I rote about yesterday. However, then I was talking about the general need for belonging in life. What I’m referring to here is that it’s better to have a partner to navigate challenges that are specific. In this (read: my) case, it’s the tides, and ebbs and flows of work. I think a mistake I’ve made in the past is believing I had to figure it out myself. Today, I’m much more comfortable looking a friend in the eye and saying, “I have no idea what is next.” This, my friend, is quite liberating.
