Do you ever feel like a pause button has been pushed on parts of your life?
Meanwhile the rest of it is racing along, and you wonder how all the parts are ever going to be connected again?
There's some sort of elastic holding you all together, but still allowing for the parts of you to draw away from each other.
You can't think of one thing in particular that caused the pause (or maybe you can), but it is there. You don't have control of it, and that's scary. You wonder if ever the parts do reconnect whether they will fit properly. It's kind of like a jigsaw puzzle with enough pieces missing that the picture doesn't quite make sense.
How long will the pause be in place?
