Fear causes me to avoid certain situations. I probably didn’t need therapy to tell me that most of my apprehensions come from fear of failure, being trapped, making a wrong decision, rejection. I often compare myself to others and wonder how I stand up to them. The fancy moms at nursery school drop off who... Continue Reading →
At 11:30pm I was working later than I should have when my attention was broken by the sound of a whimper coming from upstairs.
