To everybody out there struggling to take care of themselves, to get their work done, to take a shower, to get out of bed, to breathe in and out, I get it and I’m with you. We can get better at this self-care stuff together.
Disclaimer: I’ve never done this before, so who knows if any of this is a good idea, but I’m willing to give it a shot because perfection is the enemy of progress.
Do I simply need to accept that this is adulthood and the holidays feel different on this side of 20? Or am I losing a magic worth fighting to save?
Unlike a romantic breakup, your relationship with your therapist is all about you, so if it isn’t working, you should explore other options.
Witness is the best form of love. See each other.
I was not being dramatic, I was not misinterpreting anything. I was reacting rationally to an irrational situation. I just hadn’t learned that this is how it is to be a woman.
I’m learning how to do things for myself. With no one watching, no one counting on me, just…doing it because it needs done, because it’s part of being healthy and happy and successful.
I would adjust. That’s what I keep telling my baby that I feel terrible for hoping isn’t there. "I will love being your mom, it just wasn’t the plan right now so I’m freaking out. Mommy does that a lot. But she loves you."
