On the plus side, the angsting has been short-lived, and a solution to my problem (which, because of reasons, I can’t really go into, but is, in a nutshell, that I got totally overstretched) has presented itself. Actually – and I am going to give you this lesson for free* – I could have saved myself about two weeks of angst if I’d just asked for what I needed instead of assuming that my request was impossible.
*The reason I’m not charging for this lesson? Because I know that those of you who need this lesson don’t believe me, and, right when you need it most, won’t remember. Wouldn’t life be so much easier if we could all just learn things without first getting a personal lesson?
