All your life growing up, you took it for granted that you’d grow up, go to college, get a job, get married, build a career, have babies, go through mid life crisis, lose your parents and retire. If somewhere in this list, you hit a glitch, how do you cope? You look around and all the people you know seem to be chugging along predictive lines. Where do you go for inspiration? Do you trust yourself to take the right decisions? Do you look to strangers for inspiration? What is it you do?
This is not about me. This past week I have been going through strange conversations in my head which is making me rethink all my safe ideas of the future. I realize I have no clue. About coping, about reaching out. About anything at all.
