On the outside looking in he/she seems perfectly fine, they have a great work life balance & seems to be well liked among their friends. You don't even know to ask what's wrong because everything seems perfect. You start asking yourself what was missing and how you could be the last to know but sometimes its better to understand that there was a reason you were in the dark. Your mother/father/sister/brother/cousin wanted to keep you on the outside and did a great non doing it. Now you just like the rest of the friends and family members who really don't knowing what the next step is.
