I am a fiercely private person and it can be easy to go to radio silence when I am struggling. But it seems important to say what is true, that depression and anxiety are making it hard for me to function right now. Many factors might be contributing, it's hard to know while in the middle of the storm.
Why speak up at all? Because I believe in the healing power of telling the whole story, not only the shiny bits. As a maker of medicine art, I trust in the beauty of including the lights and the darks. I work in cycles of deconstruction and rebuilding. My traditions lean on both the ability to sing songs of worship and songs of lament. I will not allow the darkness to have the last word.
Why speak here on my business page? Because world events are shifting everything and silence is no longer an option (if it ever was).
Sending much love and healing to you on this Monday morning.
