Why I’ve Stopped Living Like Each Day is My Last
After living a frenzied life for as long as she can remember, a woman gives herself permission to slow down:
"Here’s the Big Lesson I’ve learned: no matter how hard you try, shit falls apart anyway. This is a relief, actually. It’s not MY job to keep everything together. It’s not MY fault if things fall apart. Additionally, living in survival mode is not a healthy thing. This is what is scaring me right now. I don’t know any better than to drive myself onward. Ever faster. Ever stronger. Always biting off more than I can chew. I am so driven that I am modeling that for my children. I am showing them that keeping up the frenzied pace is good and normal and healthy."
