This is not my beautiful house
This is not my beautiful wife
I really have a problem with the word epiphany.
In my experience, people seem to treat it like a magic spell—I had an epiphany, so you should appreciate that and forget everything that happened before.
But it just doesn’t work that way.
Even if the person never repeats the behaviour they had the epiphany about, it doesn’t change or reverse the past. Everything they did, everything they said, that still happened.
If someone genuinely realizes that they’ve been hurtful, saying, “I’m sorry” means a lot more. Saying, “I had an epiphany” seems to be used as a cop-out. “Oh, no. That was the old me. The new me doesn’t do that. Why would you bring that up? It’s over now.” It’s almost a way of shifting the blame to the other person.
This kit has something VERY IMPORTANT to say.
what does the fox say?
*watching Ghost From The Machine* ...what is this store and where can I find one? 😮
Ask Adam and Jamie.
Went out to see my horse again, had what I think is my longest ride so far (I have no idea how long it was. Time has no meaning when I ride the moose). She was really good—she startled a few times, but again, it was just a twitch. Yaaaaaaay.
Agh I was so close to falling asleep.
And then story.
And then mighty wife-snores.
