I still remember the horror, the helplessness, and the hatred I had in my heart. I’d just been fired from a job I hated but felt that I needed to keep. We’d just moved into a new home, with a new mortgage and our six-month-old daughter was asleep upstairs.

I suppose I’m trying to find my authentic voice and feel vulnerable — like I have one shot at setting up who I am. I know writing “scared” can be a good thing, but then it also is a bad thing for the sales end. Does this make sense?”
