But I’m finally getting better at adjusting. I think.
I have good days. I have ok days. I have really awful days. But for the most part, I can handle all of it. I have just realized that it is ok to say, I need a break. I need a minute (or 15) to gather myself, to regroup, to take some deep breaths … so that I can deal with the problem at the moment.
I don’t have to handle everything perfectly, but I do really need to remember (a) that I can ask for people and (b) there are people around me that really WANT to help but need me to say that I need help. They aren’t mind readers any more than I am.
