Dear Family

I’m really sorry. I know that I’ve been emotionally absent lately. And I’ve hurt you. Since I’m normally such a happy, strong person, I didn’t know that I was depressed. Stressed, yes. But depressed? I don’t get depressed.

And so I took my confusion out on you all. I know that you’ll forgive me because you love me and we’re in this until the end. I want you to know that I thank God for you every single day. And I’m sorry I’ve been testy and distant, more like a porcupine than a teddy bear. I’m moving through it. I am.

Thank you for being so patient with me. Thank you for your kindness. Your willingness to take the reins during this time when I have not been at my best. Thank you for trusting that I will return to myself and to you. 

I love you.
