I listened to the Furiously Happy audio book read by the author, Jenny Lawson.
I laughed out loud at the absurdity of her train of thought. (In part, because it isn’t far from what happens in my head.)
I mumbled, “What the…” to myself more than a few times.
Then, all of a sudden, chapter thirty hits me. And I’m bawling in the car, driving down the expressway.
Yes. That’s exactly it. THAT is how I feel. It’s not just me.
This is how it feels – this is what I have never been able to put into words – will never be able to put into words even in my head.
I’m not sure that I ever truly understood.
And then I heard her words echo through my car. I heard her explain to her readers what my life feels like some days.
But, instead of sadness, I felt relief.
So, thank you Jenny Lawson. Thank you!
