Instead of a tidy ending, we want to just provide a series of outlooks to take moving forward. \n\n<>[[Next.|amandaWTF]]<>[[Next.|workSucks]]<>\n\n<>

Why won't your thoughts back off for five seconds?\n4: Snap out of it. "//\n\nYou apologize as well, and say that it's probably because you haven't been sleeping well.\n\nShe tries to steer the conversation to one of mutual interest while you're still feeling incredibly embarrassed and vulnerable. <>\n\n//"A lot of it has to do with my depression.

She offers to get the number for you. You desperately want this relationship to continue, to be stronger. You spend the rest of the night with Alex, occasionally being introduced to people, and nodding along with group conversations even if you don't participate that much.\n\nAt the end of the night, as you're falling asleep with your girlfriend in the crook of your arm, she thanks you again for coming. Now you can remove yourself from the uncomfortable position the therapy sessions put you in, but you can do it without feeling like you're //totally// letting Amanda down.
