The truth is...

I'm going to be honest.

I'm not going to keep pretending like life is perfect right now, because it isn't.

I'm stressed.

I've been sick for over a month.

I've been in and out of the doctor, with lots of needles put in my arms.

I quit my job.

I feel like I'm letting people down.

I need a new job.

So that's where it all begins. It's been a hard little while for me. Don't get me wrong, I have lots of blessings...but there comes a point where I really am just tired of keeping up my facade everywhere. So I'm letting it down for a moment. I'm STRESSED. Even angry sometimes. More than once, I have wanted to throw things, scream, or just curl up and cry.

I know everyone's lives are hard from time to time, but what consolation is that when all I have energy to think about right now is how I'm going to get out of this predicament?

Anyway...if you have heard of any job openings, I would love to hear about them.

(I will be working part-time at Build-a-bear in Kenwood.)

Adrienne - I'm so sorry! I'm definitely keeping my ears peeled for anyone hiring!

Sometimes life sucks. It's okay to be stressed and let down your facade occasionally. Just don't wallow in it indefinitely.

Just speaking as one who just came up from wallowing for a long few weeks that have been as stressful as yours!

Hang in there. If you ever want to talk, you know where to find me. I am still a great listener even if we're long past our YW days!
