I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: the English language is weird. Sometimes. Most of the time.
It is amazing to me how so many English words have double meaning. On one hand positive. On the other hand, negative.
Take withdrawing, for example.
If a person is withdrawing to reflect, we commend them and wish we could withdraw as well.
On the other hand, if a person is withdrawing to hide or runaway from life, we worry and encourage them to rejoin life.
I often need to withdraw.
I’ll let you decide whether that is positive or negative.
