Back when navigating a new city required books and memorising I had coping strategies:
I knew how to get from A to B.
I knew how to get from A to C.
When I needed to get from C to B, I would drive back to A. Then get to B: C to A to B.
One day a friend was with me in the car and said: "Why don't you just go left and over that river?"
Just like that my map was connected: B was next to C all along.
Now in life, I still do the same. I reset back to a known place, so that I can get to another.
When people travel with me, and help me connect the maps, skipping that reset: That is what love is.
