I love this, Alicia. Thank you for sharing and I do in fact understand from my own experience. I’m right there with you, in it til the end, friend.
I’m fascinated by the “fixers.” I recently wrote a story where someone left a comment asking if I’d tried being happy. I was like, Oh! Wow! I hadn’t thought of that! What a simple solution because really?
Good on you for sharing your stories. We need to hear them. The world needs to hear them.
