A Short Fiction Story About Anxiety and Thinking for Someone Else.

Once we say what we have to, for our peace of mind, there is no way back. There is only one result. And you might like it or not. Let it happen. If you do not like it, it will be tough, but only for as long as you allow it to be. We do not know what another person thinks or how he or she will act. We only know how we think and how we act. And with luck and training, we can exercise some control over our thinking and actions.

“We suffer more often in imagination than in reality.” — Seneca
