Like many of you, I recently reached my emotional limit. Now what?
Thanks for your support, Sari.
Ooof. I am just so filled with sadness when I think of all the amazingly smart and talented women I know who have similar experiences. I am so angry at the thwarted creativity and the books and articles and documentaries that didn't get made, and the lost time --and the lost income and security too. And I am so sorry that this has been your experience too. I don't know what the "now what?" is that comes after this. But I'm glad you're writing, and I look forward to reading what you get onto the page.
I do not have an answer or a solution to the question of 'what next' or 'now what'. But thank you Sari! It is and has been a tough time for all of us. Some of us have broken down, coped up well, moved on or even given up. But what really matters is that all of us are still here, trying to search for ways to deal with this unprecedented crises. I am losing words right now to express my feelings. I really wish I could just give a tight hug to you to tell you that you are doing great! You are an amazing woman and strong source of inspiration for all of us. Sari, you are enough! Don't let anything or anyone make you believe anything less than that.
