The pressure to pay to the bills.

The stress to make the right decision right now.

The anxiety about figuring out which solution will work.

The fear about letting go over and over and over.

It's all so real it feels surreal.

Honestly, you just really, really, really want to run away.

And, who could blame you?

You do deserve a break from all that's real before you break. You do need time away from what's going wrong. The space away from the problems often helps you figure out a comforting perspective.

The danger, though, is believing you must hide from what's real because it's just really too big for you. The most devastating problems only occur when you keep your head in the sand.

The reality is this: You are strong enough to face your reality. You are wise enough to find solutions. You are compassionate enough with yourself to receive support. You are courageous enough to let go.

You can.
