keep going... you are on the true path here. As you and K become more authentic to yourselves you will become more authentic to each other.
You say you could have lived without, etc. but were you living? really living in touch with your true self? were you following your destiny, or existing by force of habit, before this crisis?
follow the path you are on to self knowledge and self esteem and you will know when you get there that the price was worth the prize.
I will uphold you from time to time, as I remember your courage.
your trueBrit trueRiver Friend of Truth.
