In my 20s is this memory of a phone call, utterly unexpected and needed, that will forever mean so much—in that moment at least. In our sad moments we tend to think of ourselves as unworthy of love. And so when people who love us actually show up—we are overcome with so many different emotions. Fear, gratitude, disbelief, contempt, hope, sadness, tenderness, you name it. We can't just say: This made me happy. It's often 20 other different things. We contradict ourselves, stick to one emotion. You can love someone and feel something opposite at the same time.
