You Are Not A Failure

“You don’t seem like you’re fully invested in this…” he relayed, regarding a decision that needed to be made.

Tears stung the back of my eyes. I didn’t want to admit it: of course he was right, but not for the reason he thought.

The Cure for a Bad Attitude

Have you ever had one of those days where frustration has threatened to over take you? That’s where I sat, on the verge of tears.
