“Don’t let your luggage define your travels, each life unravels differently.”
— Shane Koyczan
This week for me has been difficult. I have been dealing with a mental health crisis of a family member which is about the hardest thing I have ever had to do. At times it feels like it would be so easy to give in to hopelessness or lose it myself or just collapse. Yet somehow, perhaps because I know I need to stay strong in the situation and because I will not give up on someone I love, I find that I have more strength than I knew. I know that I can see this through simply because it is necessary and that at the end of it, there will be clear skies and then I can relax (and possibly fall apart a bit myself). I will not give into fear (tho I acknowledge it) but will do what is needed each step of the way.
