Thank you so much for reaching out. When I wrote this — I was broken down because I had a really bad day. Medium is unfortunately or fortunately — my platform of choice for offloading stuff that give me panic attacks — after I realize I hit “publish.”
I grew up with the mindset that you never share the bad times — only the “good.” But, I don’t want to wait until I’m on top of the world to connect with people.
So, even when I’m a mess — I still feel the need to share that — in case it gives others permission to do the same without shame.
But, thanks again for sharing these resources. I will keep them handy and pass it on — accordingly.
