The past that divides us is now better forgot, Lest thoughts of revenge twist those threads in a knot - Cry in the Night

I'm sure it's happened to you. Tangled threads, yarn, jewelry. You gently try to unravel it. You make a little progress, or so it seems. Then more frustration.
Still entwined.
You put it down for a time.
Go back later, try again.
Another tedious attempt seems futile. Eventually, out of desperation perhaps, you just pull at it and the result - only a knot remains. That's how it goes sometimes. You put it in a drawer under an old t-shirt for safe keeping, just in case.
Maybe one day you'll be victorious.

I believe the trick is knowing when the knot is not undoable, so that your precious time and energy are not wasted on a futile enterprise.

It is often very hard for us, as proud, intelligent people, to discern when we have encountered a knot that will never untie. But it is so important to understand what you are faced with when you find one.

Nothing is safe from knots... not even when put for safe keeping under an old t-shirt

Untangle a person, and they will be straight for a while - teach them to self-detangle and they can find their own comfort zone among the kinks life has to offer.
Someone offered this to me today, I thought it was brilliantly simple.
