"Raelene was a bright light when I was in the dark..."
Raelene is amazing! Talk with her. She’s a great listener and if nothing else helped me open up about aspects of my life I’d told very few people about. Sometimes just talking to someone outside your family and social circle can bring you new perspective and can be a first step in getting both your true self back as well as getting your life back on track. Raelene was a bright light when I was in the dark. There was no judgement and the conversation flowed so naturally. I would recommend that you talk to her even if you are unsure what to say or where to begin. I did and I continue to reap the benefits. It could be that one conversation that gets you your life back.
