It’s good to read from you, old new friend. I miss our conversations hehehe.
I highlighted the sentences that stuck with me, even though I have issues with compromising. I always prefer ‘understanding’.
I often find that when I compromise, I end-up resenting either myself or the person I compromised for. Usually both.
But when I take the time to understand ( and to be understood), the actions flow almost naturally.
As for work…I know I love what I do and I don’t want to retire. I was thinking the other day that I might even die with a book in my hand: either reading or writing.
I find so much joy in storytelling. I am also aware of what happens when we take anything to the extreme.
My guess is that all we do in this life is finding our personal balance and dealing with the consequences of our choices.
Thank you for the insightful comment, I appreciate that you took the time to read and share your thoughts.
