"When there is hell to pay, it is usually cheaper to pay it than to finance an endless purgatory.
~ Robert Brault ~
Sometimes things that go awry are easy to fix, and sometimes they're not. What seems as if it should be straightforward isn't, and becomes convoluted and complex, like strings that knot beyond reason in a disentangling attempt.
The only answer at that point is patience. We have to take a deep breath, settle in for however long it takes, and un-do the mess piece by piece and bit by bit.
I stay calm in tangled-up situations and patiently undo the knots.
