the truth is.

“And I never knew at that age, in my 20s, that “I don’t know” is actually a legitimate answer that you’re allowed to say. You’re allowed to say, I don’t know, and you’re allowed to ask for as much time as you need until you do know. And if somebody doesn’t wanna give you that time, they’re allowed to leave. But you’re allowed to sit with your ‘I don’t know’. And I never sat with it because it was uncomfortable. Nobody likes that place. And so I always said yes. Oh, sure. Let’s move in together, let’s get married, let’s buy a house, let’s do all this stuff that I was sort of half yes, half no.”

-Elizabeth Gilbert
