Today I talked and texted with many friends. Each of them was so understanding and supportive. None of them dismissed my feelings, they just listened and created a space of comfort for me.
I thanked them all and am so grateful for their presence. Because of their kindness, love, and compassion, I was that I returned to go deep and regain some motivation; I went on a car ride with my dog for about an hour.
Thank you all so very much
