A tug of love does your head in, ditto some other warring factions that seem hell-bent on making you piggy in the middle or dragging you into their argument when you’d rather look the other way. There are ways to outmanoeuvre such people – or preferably don’t let them cast you in this role in the first place. Peacemaker is often a thankless role at the best of times. You don’t have a hotline to the source of everybody’s eternal happiness. Home and routine trumps the unknown and you really don’t feel like playing fast and loose with anything connected to your emotional security.
