And there is gain in this.

By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.

your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.

about why you behave the way you do.

instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.

a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
