keep it simple

Sometimes, yeah, ok, most times, I make everything way too complicated.

Here's what I tell myself when I'm tired of spinning in circles.

If I love my spouse, I won't contact xAP.

If I love my child, I won't contact xAP.

If I love my xAP, I won't contact xAP.

If I love myself, I won't contact xAP.

Love it. Simple is good! :)

The last one can be hard to accept. But, you will get there. Just keep reminding yourself that it is a journey - one foot in front of the other, baby steps if that's what you need to do.

And you'll get there.
