There is one line from Rudyard Kipling's If that I have never agreed with, for all that the rest struck a chord. "If neither foe nor loving friend can hurt you" Because, if you never let anyone in far enough to hurt you, then you never really had a friend. I have never understood.
Being at work, my support network is a little problematic to reach, or I wouldn't be posting this here. Anyone want to help me distract myself with a disection of If? Or anything else, for that matter.
