I have the whole week off. I should be productive and do laundry and clean some junk… but all I want to do is stay in my pjs, be a lazy bum and watch movies all day.
But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.
This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.
