True Story.

True Story.

Leaving home was always an option but such bold moves weren’t my specialty, the possible repercussions too frightening.

So I bought a dog and removed the ability to stay.

Sometimes the courage to choose lies in pretending there’s no longer a choice.

    Love this: “such bold moves weren’t my specialty.” And yet getting a dog feels pretty bold to me! Nice work.

    I love the way you stated that last line. It’s so true, and I have found myself doing the same thing.
