I had a phone call over the weekend. From a family member. Part of me was expecting the phone call; part of me was hoping not to ever have this particular conversation again... I'm not completely surprised by my response to what was asked - I reverted to type and caved. The only positives (from my side) in the whole conversation were that I raised two separate 'issues'. However, they were non-negotiable as far as the family member was concerned. And I caved on those too. I'm gutless. Completely gutless.
And before you ask, I'll be fine. I just...I just wish I could really escape into my books. Not be in the real world. Do you ever wish you could be anywhere else but here?
