Friend: I see me too. In addition I noticed her guilt came from not rescuing (fixing) her brother. I actually have been labeled “the fixer” because I always fix problems (or at least try) for everyone -Gosh are we all crazy? My New Years resolution is not to “fix” anything that isn’t my problem. I’m tired of it all.
Me: On the morning of my law school graduation, I was finishing the last of 120 Public Interest graduation sashes for the honorees. I sewed them all myself. Lilian helped me cut them out. I sewed them because I thought that they were too expensive. I didn’t see the school giving us funding for them. Hastings has not had them since. So I was right, but in the long run, what diff did it make?

Friend: scary, we take different paths and still end up the same place. this really is a bad habit that i, at least, must break. I think that every time i feel the urge to step in and fix or give, i’m going have a brownie. i will be fatter (oh well) but happier i think. hope you have a lovely Christmas. be good to yourself.
