This is a traumatic time in our country right now. Most people I know are hurt and sickened by the choices of our current administration, and everyone I love is trying to tack themselves down somehow to feel safe and less worried.
Most of our lives are spent in the space of “about to.”
Over the years, I have spent my fair share of time in depression, worry, low self-esteem, and uncertainty. I have had my heart broken more times than I can remember, and have wrestled with the deep dark. My vulnerability has sometimes been an asset and sometimes a liability.
