Unbelievably, today is the first of March, and it has been another two months since I last posted. Gaps like that are potentially fatal for bloggers, but I am hopeful that those of you who read this will forgive me the lapse and continue to accompany me on my sometimes convoluted and difficult journey.
I have a tendency, when things get difficult, to withdraw into myself and neither seek help nor share my struggle. Since the whole point of starting this blog, just over a year ago, was to do both those things, it has been totally counterproductive of me to turn away from writing just at the time I need it most. But in the spirit of self-compassion, I am acknowledging that and letting it go. What was, was. What will be, I hope, will be regular posting again as I start moving forward once more.
Thanks to those of you who have told me that you've missed my posts, and that you value what I have to say. I appreciate that deeply.
