the other side
In the last few months I’ve heard about one friend’s messy divorce, another friend’s divorce after just having a baby, another friend’s unhappy two marriages, a teacher’s grandchild with Down’s Syndrome, a friend’s infertility struggles, and a former roommate’s sudden marriage to a foreign woman who speaks no English, just to name a few.
It’s made me realize that my life is blissfully uncomplicated in comparison. I’ve failed to see the compromises and struggles that all those people “on the inside” were going through.
Turns out this little life ain’t so bad.
