Today was incredibly hard. I dealt with waves of shame, guilt, worthlessness, regret… The best that I can affirm today is that having these feelings is legitimate and that these feelings are not a permanent state
Today I am thankful for a safe drive from Baltimore to Pittsburgh, my parents’ home where I’m staying, and kids who are worth the drive. I’m thankful for people who are willing to stick their necks out for me. I’m thankful for big fish sandwiches and fries that reheat well. I’m thankful to be a part of a system that holds its leaders accountable.
