A Moment of Reflection – I Saw Me

I don’t really know who reads this. Sometimes it feels like I’m just talking to myself in a closet. I know what that’s like, because there have been times in my life when I’ve done just that: times when I’ve felt too alone, too confused, too sad, or too angry.

I don’t know who reads this, but if you’re reading and you know what it sounds like to talk to yourself in a closet, maybe this article will help you put a name on how you feel. It did for me.

I don’t know who reads this, but I’d very much like to hear from you. Do you ask questions that have no answers, like I do? Do you see answers that no one else sees? Do you hear truth in unexpected places? I do.

I don’t know who reads this, but maybe you’re like me. So maybe you’ll find a connection in this article with the fancy name: “Existential Depression in Gifted Children.” It said words that made sense to me. It described things I have done, things my children have done, ways we have been challenged and ways we have coped. It made me feel happy-sad and understood.

I cried.

Did you?
