The skies are back to sparkly.
Thank all of you for the nice comments and kind messages.
I got such good advice from several people. It was the kind of advice where you stop and think, wow, this makes so much sense. Why didn't I think of this?
Essentially, it was this. It's OK to be sad sometimes. It's OK to be down sometimes. It happens to everyone. Accept your feelings. They will pass.
It's so reasonable, isn't it?
I get all worked up when I'm in a bad place. I think the issue is that I get scared that the bad place will move in and take over. It's terrifying. Even if rationally, I know I'm not alone, somehow, I'm all alone. I'm sitting next to Nick, but I'm alone. I'll get stuck somewhere bad. All alone.
And then I have people say, hey, Lis, it's OK. And if you get stuck, we'll help you out.
It makes it all easier.
