Author's Note: I've been thinking recently about those points in our lives that end up defining us. So often, it seems like there is kind of a thread that runs through our lives. We end up in the same situations again and again until we finally get things right, and then in hindsight we realize just how pivotal that one right decision was to who we became. When it comes to relationships, I think there are so often points where a few words make the difference between stepping closer together or walking away altogether.
Below you're going to see two links, each of which takes you to a slightly different story. Both feature the same characters, with the same feelings, but each contains slightly different decisions
The decisions we make, large or small, at the key points in any relationship are a product of who we are and who the other person is, but I think sooner or later, whether we realize it in the moment or not, everything comes down to a leap of faith. Ultimately, it all comes down to whether or not we're willing to risk getting hurt for the possibility of something so much better.
