Stepping carefully on shifting ground
I can’t yet say how or why (and I fully expect more setbacks, explosions, abyss-falls, and the like), but something is… shifting. The last few days have not felt so bleak. It’s becoming easier to imagine my life as “Lori, becoming Lori.”
I’m starting to figure out that I really do need other people, want to be around other people, find that being around other people is energizing and kind of fun. I’m really not going to be a hermit locked away with my cats for the rest of my life.
I’m going to be OK.
I can’t say any more because I don’t want to start over-thinking this and freak myself out and mess everything up.
But I think I’m going to be OK.
