Thanks everyone for understanding and responding to my small freak out yesterday. I try to put my best face forward as often as I can but we all get down at times.
I know everything will work out and I truly am proud of my accomplishments and comfortable with who I am – I’m just not always comfortable with where I am.
Sometimes, as much as you want to be able to say “I’m fine”, you have a moment of weakness and accidentally say “I’m confused” or “I’m scared” or “I’m kind of sad”.
Usually when you do that in real life, the person just stares back at you with a deer in the headlights look that reads, “um… I really just wanted to talk about this pinot.”
So, embarrassed, you look away and say “So this wine… I think I detect a hint of chickory.”
And you both move on.
You bury the vulnerability and try not to talk about it because it makes people uncomfortable.
But… if you have a blog, you can share those feelings without having to see the awkward look.
It’s a chance to clear the air without having to make anyone physically uncomfortabe.
I thank you all for the support and the advice and the mental clarity.
I feel much better now
And just so you know, I’m still obsessed with this.
Even when I accidentally cook the egg over medium instead of over easy. Today I had it with roasted broccolini, so it was a full meal.
Who do you turn to when you need to talk about the “hard stuff”?
