I had a dream a few days ago that is exactly the situation I'm in. I was climbing this mountain, with a bunch of other people. The path was one-wide. At one point, it fell off on both sides and I couldn't continue... but neither could anyone else. Not because I was in the way, but because they shared the same fear as me, even though they were all ghosts of what they were. The snow on that mountain, even with all the people there, was fresh with every step I managed to take. There's so many people in my same situation who have the ability to make new steps in life, but get stuck by a too precarious path to tread alone. We need support, and to know the other people on that path enough to link ourselves together so if one falls, they're not having to start anew.
It took me four days to figure out that dream. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it's implications.
