It’s something I always battled with, and gambled on, fueled by the thought — or maybe foolish hope — that with enough time and patience, the tide would turn in my favor. Now, in retrospect, I can’t help but wonder if, as Becca voiced almost prophetically, I would have come to realize that it had never been meant for me, and that the whole painful process of waiting and trying for it had simply been meant as one very difficult lesson for me to learn.
