Déjà moo. Yeah, I know. Bad joke.
But I found myself in a situation that's almost identical to one I was in over 10 years ago. And for a while I was thinking REALLY? AGAIN?
For about a week I slid down the slope into despair and frustration. And I found myself thinking and reacting the way I would have back then.
But this time around one thing was different. I had people to turn to. They couldn't fix the situation. But they could listen. They let me know that they cared.
Then I realised something else. I'm not the same person I was a decade ago and although my initial reaction was the same I did not ACT on that reaction. I took the time to think, seek support and realise that I'm going to be okay.
