Well said. Thanks for expressing what I bet many of us feel, but don’t have the courage to admit. And sometimes just reaching out to the friend who we know will always be there and has always been there just makes us feel even worse about ourselves. Even worse, the longer we put it off, the harder it becomes to make the call. Keep on hanging in there because I promise it does get easier. The kids get older and sleep though the night. They dress themselves and become much more self sufficient and you get more time to get your home and your mind organized (well some of us never get organized LOL — it’s just not part of our DNA or something) but you will get more time to relax and will feel less stressed and anxious. Loved this heartfelt and truthful letter.
