I can best describe the process as a huge emotional rollercoaster ride. There are times when it is very scary. Sometimes the climb is unbearable. Sometimes the fall is so drastic I think I'll never get back up. And, there are times I wish I could just get off the ride...stop taking part in it all.
The big difference, of course, is not knowing how long OUR rides will need to last. And, after a really long time, all we really wish for is a smooth road...no bumbs, no giant curves thrown at us, and nothing scary.
I wish I could tell you when the smooth part arrives...I haven't gotten there yet myself.
But, I hope you get there really soon. The most important thing is that you are willing to do the work. Good for you. Hang tough.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
