Most of us have problems. Some of us are lucky to have family and friends to bounce them off. Some of us don't.
It is easy to sit behind a keyboard and judge someone else on what we would have done, how we would have handled it, how well we would have worded our question seeking help.
I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes. I've held things in. And sometime I should have just reached out. For support. For advice. And for comfort.
You all probably know that I am already aware of what's going wrong. That I should have acted sooner, spoken up louder, punctuated my question better.
You know I know, so you don't need to tell me. I'm asking for help. For guidance, for reason against my own demons. For a devil's advocate. For a hug. For someone to tell me I am strong enough to get through it.
If you have some encouraging words for me please share. For every one of me brave enough to ask the question, there are many women in the same situation who will benefit from your advice. If your advice is a little bit more edgy, try to word it in a way I can process.
I'm here at the end of my tether. I've asked because I have nowhere else to go.
Your support, your advice or your judgement may very well determine how I handle this.
