What if she did get hurt? It wouldn't be the first time and it probably wouldn't be the last. Life hurt. That's how you knew you were alive. But life was also a beautiful adventure, and the bad things were what made the good things worth cherishing.
I can't forget things, or ignore them—bad things that happen. I'm a lay-it-all-out person, a dwell-on-it person, an obsess-about-it person. If I hold things in and try to forget or pretend, I become a madman and have panic attacks. I have to talk.
