HI Amy, I don't know exactly what you are going through, or what explicit sadness you have had recently. But you MATTER. I love reading what you write - you express yourself so beautifully and realistically. I feel like you know my thoughts and articulate them as I struggle to do. Also, I am sure you matter to your family. Your kids. Your daughter especially. Try not to give up. Maybe this is a season of waiting, to see what you will run past next while deep in thought and searching. I have no real answers, but would encourage you to chat to strangers and keep moving outside. You Do Matter. But maybe you will never know how much - please don't risk going.

Pardon me for saying so but I think you're depressed. It's 2020, life sucks, cut yourself some slack. Do anything and everything today that brings you joy. Eat the chocolate. Go outside. Watch movies. Read books. I laid in bed and cried for a month this spring because...2020!! I think most of us are depressed right now. I've snapped out of it, finally. Thank God! On the other hand, maybe you're just ready for a big change and you need to feel like you're at a low point before you have the strength to make a move. I've been there too. Just try not to be too hard on yourself. Life is so hard right now.
