It’s been a little while since my life took on a dramatic shift. I can’t go into specifics right now, but if I were to say to you that I’m now living with my parents aged 26… and using my maiden name again… well, you’d probably catch my drift. This spring has been less than… Continue reading Recovery in Spring: making peace with my vulnerable self
The fact that the body manages to wake up every morning ‘despite it all’ indicates to me that, somewhere in the depths of the unconscious mind, there is a firm, fundamental belief that life is worth fighting for.
