>>The very unbrave thing was to just get the d*mn thing over with.<<

Well, I think I get most of what you've said, and understand. But I'd disagree just with this. Would it truly have been brave to suffer in this case?

I don't think waiting that week fell into the category of *righteous* or *necessary* suffering (in the M. Scott Peck kind of way). I think it would have been unnecessary and accomplished nothing. So, I still see it as braver and wiser to have jumped in instead of waiting and possibly ruminating. Sometimes waiting and stewing is, in a way, less brave, because it requires no movement. No decision, no change. And that to me, is a hard part - doing something. Anything at all - especially if it's different.

I hope that wasn't rude at all, and made a tiny bit of sense. I didn't construct my thoughts very well. (Foggy today after weird T. session.)
