A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.
Every single one.
THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
I jumped off a bridge, not the golden gate, but I had the similar feeling. When I started walking up the stairs to the bridge I realized it was a mistake, but I thought “I made it this far up, I can’t give up and turn around” so it became just me needing to finish something I had started & being a perfectionist even though I knew it was wrong.
Though the actual fall was kind of beautiful and I felt like I was flying. Looking back I am so glad I survived so I could be here and keep on keeping on.
