Oh Beth,

I am you. You are me. I too am going through what you are going through. It has been one year without contact and it is so, so hard. Well, I don’t have to tell you. You know.

And here is the thing. I don’t want to talk about it too much (although I wrote a piece about it that might help you a tiny bit). At least not with acquaintances I bump in to. Either they will judge my husband and me or they will judge her. And I still feel protective of her. And I always will. Thank you so much for this. I am so sorry you have to go through this. I am here if you want to talk.

M.S. Psychology| I write about life, relationships, things that make me laugh, cry, or all of the above in one piece. Reach me at annaismithwrites@gmail.com
