One hard, hard week

In life, we all have ups and downs. This past week had been a really rough one for me. I went to Maine for the long weekend and found out that while I was gone my apartment had gotten broken into. So emotions went through me during this time. I felt violated, scared, angry etc. The things that were stolen and the mess they made isn’t the big deal. It’s more about the trust issues I have already had, and knowing I will not feel safe in my apartment now.
I did everything I needed to.. called the police, filed reports, changed locks, looked for new places to live.. but man was it ever draining to go through this process.

I am blessed that I no longer make everything into a crisis, and now I just take one day at a time..sometimes 1 hour or a minute at a time.

    Hey torry

    Ugh I’m so sorry you had to experience that!! It’s so awful when you feel like your trust has been ripped from you. Do you have any idea who it could be? Next time you go away be careful about posting it on social media. I’ve heard of so many people experience break-ins because they posted that they were away.

    I’m glad you were able to get through that in a healthy way. I hope you never have to go through something like that again! Keep us updated on the new place!
