On inevitability

I’m seeing a guy who’s smart and kind and makes me laugh. We’ve been together about a year. A few months in, when feelings started to happen, he revealed I’m his first girlfriend. That’s been hard for me to swallow – I was married for 10 years and have a kid.

I can’t shake the feeling the whole thing is doomed and I’m being stupid or indulging myself somehow. And then if I make it past that thought, I don’t have a decent answer when I ask myself – even if I’m right and it is “doomed,” does that matter if it’s good?

Everything is doomed. Quit worrying and enjoy yourself.
