Sometimes I think that Hollywood primes us to expect every life experience to have a Very Special Lesson or moment of tidy resolution at the end.
Life isn’t always like that. Life is unpredictable and messy and full of cliffhangers that never get resolved. Life doesn’t always hand us resolutions when we want them, or balanced victories to outweigh disappointments. Of course, if movies were more like life, people would throw popcorn and demand their money back.
Once upon a time, I learned this lesson the hard way. And I’m over at Off Our Chests to tell you about it. I bet you have a similar story, too.
