When I Didn’t Want To Be Rescued

I’ve started plenty of things that I never finished. I’ve quit jobs. I’ve prematurely shared my grandiose ideas with others, because it sounded better than “I actually have no idea.” I’ve made decisions quickly and changed my mind at double the speed. I would see others who stayed – in jobs, in relationships, in cities. […]

When I Asked For Space

We weren’t getting along too well. We had changed. We were no longer what we knew, what we loved, what we had grown comfortable with. We were not growing together, we were growing apart.
