I’m learning to adjust to life after. Life after college, after babies, after a deaf ear. This happens to all of us, in some ways.
Your people want to help, but they don’t know how if you don’t ask. Let’s be the type of family, believer, and friend that shares our crazy and loves each other out of theirs.
Let’s have patience with awkward beginnings and recognize that, as in all things, growing solid friendships and communities takes time.

Losing my phone made me realize how our rushed, social media-centric, to-do list way of living is such an impediment to being present now.
