I’m going to be very candid.
I am struggling today. Life is feeling especially overwhelming.
I’m cycling through the idea in my head of taking a “mental health” day. I’m on the verge of a near internal emotional disaster and I don’t really know what else I can do to just give myself one day of breathing room, even though I have 2 days left to Spring Break.
Why do I feel this way?
Maybe for a myriad of reasons?
Missing my father.
Failed attempts at supporting my 5th grader.
Watching my 3rd grader have his own emotional struggles.
Piling work load and constant changes in the schedule that keep me spinning many plates. (I know we’re all going through it, but today I’m saturated.)
My infant child had some encounters of his own that can cause your adrenaline to sky rocket. I won’t elaborate.
As I finish this slice, I’ve already lost it and had to come back and forth to finish this post at least 3 times.
It’s just one of those moments where you have to let it all out, so you can reset and start over.
