this is a story I wrote about the struggle I had with my own self-awareness as I was going through a divorce.
strife eso is a story I wrote for the Spanish-language website Escritorio de Amor, and there’s a lot of stories about it on the site, which is written in English and which you can read more about. I started writing it back in 2011, when I was still married to the person I’d been married to for over 20 years, and we were living together again.
It’s a very personal story, and there’s a lot of very personal information to it. The part that I’m talking about in that paragraph is where I write about how I started to question who I was. I remember getting a call from my ex-wife, because she’d found out that I was starting a new job and leaving her, and she was worried about what I was going to do.
When all this happened, I was in the midst of a very dark time. While I was starting over, I was still married to the person I had been married to for 20 years before, and I was also pregnant with our second child. While I was in the midst of that dark time, I also started to question who I was. I was at my first job in a very small town, and I was meeting people who I had never seen before.
So when I started working in the town I was working in, I was just starting to get to know my coworkers. I also started to get a strange feeling that I was not me anymore. I was not the person I used to be. I was no longer the person I used to be. I was looking in on the person I used to be, and in that state, I decided to make a move.
What happens when you decide you’re not the person you were before? The answer is: you go through a period of crisis. Whether it’s a physical crisis or a mental crisis, a crisis can be a good thing. The feeling of being different can be very positive. The feelings of confusion, anxiety, depression, and so on, can be extremely disorienting. In those moments, we need to make some choices.
I know you can’t say that you made a choice, but that it felt like one. I don’t mean to make this my “choice,” but I want to talk about what it is like to be in a state of crisis. In many ways, a crisis is a state of confusion, anxiety, and depression, but in others, a crisis can be a very positive state, so I want to explain what it feels like to be in a crisis.
In the beginning, there is a state of confusion, anxiety, and depression. There are also feelings of anger, sadness, and disgust. These feelings are the result of the fact that you have no idea what you should be doing. You have no idea when you should be doing something, where to go, or where to take that other thing that you’ve been thinking about.
For the first few days or weeks of a crisis, it can feel like you are floating, a little detached from your surroundings, and you feel like you have no control over anything. You feel like you are drowning. You feel like your brain is on fire and there is nothing you can do about it.
Like our feelings, this is a common problem for new parents, especially people with new children. It’s also something that can feel true for us adults who aren’t used to it.
