I still don't think anyone needs to worry about me, but the truth is this is really hard some times too. At least the way things have been going so far, I often find this experience throws the most beautiful times and the most painful ones at me in the same breath. Or rather, the same sucker-punch to the gut that knocks the wind out of me.
