Permission to pause.
Change is hard even when I recognize it as necessary.
Words I no longer use.
On second thought, maybe don’t.
It makes sense that we like it when things make sense.
Different emotions produce different responses. Some stick around a while.
Are people at work treating me differently because of my transparency about my mental health journey?
There isn’t a cure and there’s still hope.
As I tell my story again and again, I see the progress I’ve made.
After a year, I’m back to work and back to living.
