Lesson 20, reason #470 = There is such a thing as an unhealthy job, as well as an unhealthy relationship.
Lesson 21, reason #471 = A bad work environment is an obstacle to avoid.
Lesson 22, reason #472 = A difficult time in a relationship is a learning experience.
I want to stress that these are lessons I've learned, and they apply to my unique set of circumstances. Over the course of the last year Mr. Wonderful and I have come full circle, and things have never been more solid and, therefore, better. But that is only because he decided that he, too, wanted to make this work. If he hadn't decided that, I would have continued on without him. Many people have had to make that difficult decision, and I don't envy them. I wish them peace, love and grace in return.
