I’ve come to despise the saying, “What have you got to lose?”
The answer? A LOT.
You always have a LOT to lose. Be thankful. Take only the chances you can afford to. Do not gamble away your own prosperity.
I saw a sliver of my life as a well-adjusted, happy adult. The happy ending to my story. Having conversations with myself that ended with “because it’s good for you.” And it was just that, a sliver. The other shoe ALWAYS drops. My life has been a shoe shower.
