I posted “I’m my own f*cking problem” mere hours ago and already I’ve been deluged with responses from people basically saying YES.
Just so you know, even though I am right, it still hurts to hear it from family and friends.
I’m feeling a little raw.
Not a soul told me what a lovely person I am and that they’re thrilled I’m not going to exploit my sex life anymore.
No one told me to go easy on myself.
Not that I expected anyone to, but it would’ve been nice to hear a positive message.
I reached out to my friend Rob to tell him I how I was feeling.
And as it turned out, the universe gave me EXACTLY what I needed.
“Stop. That was Michelle 2.0. You are evolving into Michelle 3.0. You learn from it and become better. A butterfly cannot spread its wings and fly if it still believes itself to be a caterpillar.”
I’ll admit, I almost cried.
Rough times, my friends.
I’m having some ROUGH TIMES.
