During the time 8-10 years ago when I was going through separation from my 15 year marriage, followed by divorce, I felt so lost and anxious.
I was questioning my thinking, meditating daily, and had great tools for finding support.
But I had a very hard time sleeping, and my thoughts would stir up a whole line of thinking about what I should do, could do, need to do.
I felt frantic. It seemed like my very survival was at stake. I could lose my home, my possessions, my stability (I already was).
And then a very dear friend texted me something.
She and I had many conversations about possibilities, and “doing” things and getting some sense of relaxation in my thoughts and prospects for work, and housing, money, security, or new love…..
….but this was a question that cut to the chase.
