There has to be a word for forgiving but not forgetting. You forgive for yourself but remain cautious because you know what they are capable of.
There has to be a word for that rare chance where you say the right thing during a difficult time. L’esprit de l’escalier is missing the opportunity to say the perfect thing and the exact opposite of this word.
There has to be a word for knowing when to overcompensate for someone you’re in a relationship with (whether it is familial, platonic or romantic). This does not mean that you’re taken advantage of. It’s just that there are days where someone is only 40% in it, so you give 60% to make it complete. And if situations were reversed, they do the same for you.
There has to be a word that is dedicated entirely to a dog’s intuition in knowing when they need you to rub their belly. And in the process, make you feel like everything will eventually fall into place.
