I am an arrogant twit
But I know that woman was in a bad place
and I stepped back
Because I didn’t want to be drawn into… something
I guess we’ll never know
But she’s gone now and I could have-
I am an arrogant twit.
(*I since found out she had a heart condition but that doesn’t make it any better or worse)
I want to say something profound about missed opportunities but I can’t think of anything other than this rather glib formulation – don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s never easy to gauge how bleak things are for others. Brave writing – got me thinking about similar things in my life…. .
Thank you. The reaper has swung close-but-not-too close a few times lately. It’s hard to know how to process these nearby-tragedies. As someone said “there is no sense, only life”
