It’s been a very long day. It started early and ended late. I worked hard. Then I FaceTimed with my niece and nephews, helped another niece order a birthday present for her Mom, and taught my parents to download and then use Zoom on their iPads over the phone.
I’ve struggled with depression since I was 16. And I get so down and low and blue. I’m trying very hard to keep my head above water right now. For a long time I didn’t know how to get what I needed from relationships while also giving to them. I try so very hard to be a good person, partner, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, librarian, feminist and all of the things I identify as. But today, what I want to know, is how do I do better?
How do I be better right now?
