Too many people I worked with were focused primarily on the relationships outside of themselves.
The one with the boy, the girl, the thing, the job,
the image they tried to present, and/or their relationship to the “shoulds.”
“Because that’s how it should be, Michelle”
“That’s not something I should do, Michelle”
“It should look like _________ instead of _________, Michelle”
There was just one thing they didn’t know:
Sometimes, the boy/girl/thing/job/persona/conventional ideologies change.
And when they do, then what?
