I'm as all right as I can be. It helps that I don't live near my family or in the (very religious) town I teach because it would get a lot more...noticeable that I've been having issues.
It's a combination of a lot of factors. Politics from the pulpit for one, a doubling-down on traditional gender roles for another (I will not be a stay-at-home mother in either sense of the term, tyvm), trying to navigate an interfaith relationship between two families that have no intention of giving in on the subject of conversion, and the continual unearthing of abuse cover-ups over the past year...
What do you do when something that brought you comfort your entire life fails to live up to the expectations it instilled in you? How do you recover a shattered trust?
With cocaine... I mean music! Yes, go with music.
