The correspondence between you and someone else is getting a lot more complicated. The two of you are working under some assumptions, and they need to be either confirmed or debunked before things go any further. And the only way you can do that is to speak with them in real time and get them to answer the questions that they’ve been avoiding. You need to come clean a little bit, too, so set a date and time!
Someone in your family probably just doesn’t get what’s going on with your love life, and maybe it’s not really their business. Nonetheless, being mature about listening to them shows you’re in control.
You usually like to be in the thick of things, but every now and then it’s a good idea to let your partner take center stage. Not only will you find it relaxing, they’ll discover a hidden side to their personality.
If you need obstacles to keep motivated, then staying busy shouldn’t be a problem for you for the foreseeable future. You’re certainly getting your share of boulders in the road. Use your energy to turn a profit.
