Everybody should have friends who support and encourage them.
I’m lucky. I’ve got a tonne of them.
But I’ve also got someone a little beyond that.
I’ve got Kerry.
Kerry’s the friend who understands that I’m a bit of a contrarian and don’t always respond well to “You can do it!” and “Go get ’em, Tiger!” type exuberance.
She can tell when I’m in stubborn mode or want to sulk, and I’ll just brush off that kind of positivity.
So she throws some reverse psychology like this at me instead.
If you don’t try, you can’t fail. Isn’t that what they say?
And next thing I know, I’m out there trying.
Every fucking time.
