It’s true that you can’t go home again. I tried.

Great story! Just read a NY magazine article about having kids and one lady said something that really resonated with my (26-yr old) self:

“[kids]are a huge source of joy, but they turn every other source of joy to shit.”

I think that’s the dilemma- every choice we make is also a rejection of other choices; or like you say, “The longer we live and go down certain paths, the less easily accessible other routes become.”

Thanks for sharing!
