Learning to let go of perfectionism and embrace realness is a process, but there’s no shame in it.
Entering the homestretch of my medication taper and trying to discern what is frustration from social distancing and quarantine and what are symptoms of depression. There’s very little difference.
After months of numbness, I recognized an emotion as I was feeling it. That’s a big deal.
It was an ugly race, but it felt good to finish strong. It also made me consider the difference between doing my best and doing the best I know how.
