I got this email from a good friend shortly after my last post, and I’m sharing it here because I think it probably applies to a lot of other people:
“You are kicking adulthood’s ass. I know you don’t feel like it but you are. You were unemployed for a long time and you got through it beautifully. I know you’re still worried because the new job is so new and you’re still a little scared, but you’re going to be fine.
“You have also dealt with a lot of strange new romantic relationships without too much drama.
“You are stronger than you think. You are an amazing, kind, funny, and smart person. I know this last year or so has been awful, but you are showing it who’s boss.
“Keep on keepin’ on.”
