I'm not sure how old you are, but you sound like a fellow millenial. If you are, then you can relate to how devestating things have become after the 90s and how much pressure there is to just "handle it" without any moment necessary for reflection and owning your emotions. As a kid, I was definitely seen as a nuisance for being vulnerable, but as I've grown older, and my brother and older cousins have grown older, we've all realized that vulnerability is necesary for survival. Thanks for sharing this!
