And the ultimate burden of working out of that space is mine


The lows become so much worse because they are accompanied by so much guilt at the pain and inconvenience I’m causing to the people around me. In that space, all I can think about is how worthless and pathetic I am, and now no one should be forced to tolerate my presence, but that kind of thinking can push people even further away because it can sound like there’s nothing they can do or that I don’t want their support.

I just need some time. I’ll be good again.
