Guilt and How I’ve Handled It

Guilt is an emotion that I’ve become familiar with lately. Particularly the guilt that comes with wanting or desiring something that I feel like I’m not supposed to want or have.

Reign in the Cavalry

I recently received a very mean text message from a blocked number. This person told me their exact thoughts on my actions during my divorce. It was a very short message, but it was hurtful and rude.
