I shut down too. Not sure when that became my go to method of dealing with TOO MUCH but it is what it is. And it’s cost me more than one relationship. I’ve been called selfish for it too but it’s hard to stack the gravity of a first world problem up against, oh, I don’t know, a terminal illness or maybe a 103000 acre fire?

This was a great piece Julia. And exactly what I needed this morning. Thank you.
