And then I think, no, no, it was none of that. It was me--all along, I was the one who resisted. I wanted to hold happiness in reserve, like a bottle of champagne. I postponed it because I was afraid, because I overvalued it, and because I didn't want to use it up, because what do you wish for then? That possibilty, that I was intimidated by getting what I wanted, is the hardest one for me to consider, which might mean it is the likeliest.
