The first thing I must do is thank the other authors—Jenn, Keith, Adam, Suzy, Erin… all of you. You have shown that fear and self-doubt are not your masters, and that writing of them does not give them power. It instead reveals, to anyone who wishes to see it, the simple fact that we all struggle. We all have failures and successes. None of us is alone in the struggle.
I will share one of my struggles with you.
It goes something like this:
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
I’m sorry for being so sorry…”
This can continue indefinitely. The thoughts are obsessive, irrational, and merciless. I often feel as if I am drowning. I don’t want to drown, so I am teaching myself to swim.
I have allies.
