I've been wanting to do this for a very long time but I procrastinated out of fear. Fear of being judged, of this not being good enough, and of being too exposed. I am normally a pretty private person but I also have a strong need to communicate. To share my story in the hopes that something from my journey may inspire or help someone else on theirs.
Perspective is key to so much. To me my problems may seem insurmountable but to another they may be trivial and petty.
I want to acknowledge that I recognize how privileged I am in so many ways: I am a white woman born and living in Canada. I have a loving family and a handful of incredible friends. I am employed and for the most-part I enjoy what I do. I have a healthy and kind son who fills my heart more than I knew was possible. My needs, well beyond basic, are met.
And yet, I'm sad. After learning how to love hard I am now hurting hard, and some days it feels relentless. I am going through major changes in every area of my life all at once and during a global pandemic. I get lonely, confused, angry, and frustrated. But I'm also working hard to remember my wild, celebrate being uncaged, own my decisions, and applaud my self respect.
