You have an appliance which draws too much power and the breaker can't handle it, so it trips. Turns itself off to avoid an overload.
Surely that's the way it works with sanity.
Three months behind on rent, water heater nonfunctional, no steady work, $1 in the bank account, overdue on at least three utilities, a mouse infestation, my mother's a basket case in an impossible situation, my dad is getting divorced from an incredibly manipulative wife, and I think my car is hanging by a thread.
Maybe all of this has to happen. For the reason.
The good is not outweighing the bad lately but the good might just be enough to offset the bad for the short term. If any of it happens.
And all that really matters to me is a stupid email from an ex-girlfriend. How things have changed.
I'm hanging off the edge and it's all I can do to not look down.
Five years ago, all of this would have broken me. People talk about the light at the end of a tunnel...how do they know it isn't an anglerfish that's just going to eat you?
