    Summary

    “And how does that make you feel?” The doctor looked at Alex patiently, but expectantly.

    It always came back to that question, didn’t it? How do you feel? That single question had been Alex’s biggest hurdle in making therapy serve any purpose. She often didn’t know exactly how she felt, and wasn’t terribly interested in expressing it when she did. That type of navel-gazing wasn’t her strength, but she was learning there was no point in even trying if she weren’t willing to do the work.

    “It scares me,” Alex admitted. “I’m afraid of losing, I’m afraid of winning, I’m afraid of running, and afraid of passing up the chance to run. I’m afraid of what it means that I even still think about this type of thing.”
