Doubt is so easy to summon.
Same with fear.
It’s like crack cocaine isn’t it?

The list goes on and on. So please, please don’t say, “But you’ve got it made. You are living the dream. You are so fortunate.”
This would generally be considered an insult, and completely disrespectful. And maybe the beginning of an excuse.
But forgiveness rushes in and all that’s left is joy. Almost unspeakable joy.
