    Question a question..


    I need help. I have a conditional sentence and I have to say why is in the present continious.

    the sentence:
    " If I've invited someone into my life, albeit subconsciously, I am giving myself either to repeat the saga or to get out of it."

    I have to say why the last part ( "I am giving myself...") is in the continious form.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: a question..

    Hello Ana

    Why not look at it the other way round.

    What would the sentence mean, if the verb in the second clause were in the simple present tense?

    Post your thoughts, and I'll come back later.
