Time Out - In Confidence

I don’t know where my life is going. All I know is that tomorrow will be different. It has to be different. Like many of you know, heartache is the worst. The subsequent weight loss is hardly silver lining. I just ended a serious relationship out of the blue, pretty much unexpected by everyone I know. That’s not the point though. On top of my dating woes, I’m also in the middle of my biggest career-transition yet and within a few months I’ll be living in a new city. I haven’t the slightest clue what my life will look like come July.

Everything is in flux, to put it lightly. Change might excite some people; you might see opportunity. I agree—a new job or apartment can be refreshing. But this much change all at once terrifies me. I’m almost paralyzed. It’s like walking in a room and forgetting how you got there. The whole day is a blur, and then somehow it’s Sunday again.

From the outside, you can’t tell. I still look composed and confident. I carry on each day as if I have it all figured out. This tends to amaze people, especially when they know about the details in my life. The problem is that I’m so used to being there for my friends and family that I forget what it’s like to need someone myself. People count on me to be rational and strong. I’m great at that. I give kick ass advice and my friends confide in me often. But where does that leave me? How do I ask for advice? I have a fear of over-sharing as it is so I can’t imagine opening up about my flaws and actual feelings.

Sadly, I’ve overlooked my own problems and pretended to be invincible for too long. I’m ready to face things, entrust in my friends, and retire my poised façade. So here I am, confiding in you first. I know it will all work out—it always does. I just hope I regain balance sooner than later.
