Weekend Reads: Disillusioned

Ugh. Just looking at that caption has me upset.

I just COULD NOT get into blogging last week. I was too sad, too emotional. Now I'm angry. I'm confused. I'm disheartened. And I think I need to write about it to help make sense of it all. I've shifted. I'm not the happy, positive person I was a couple weeks ago. I'm feeling disenfranchised, as though I'm worth less in some people's eyes than I realized, I'm feeling deep dread, and sadness to my core. But. I've mostly stopped crying, so that's good at least.
