I have traveled overseas before, but at times I forget to do something important before leaving. So I finally made a pre-departure checklist to help you and I maintain our sanity before lift off.
"You have to love yourself before anyone can ever love you." I heard it all the time. I knew those who said it meant well, but I'm going to be the one who will tell you what you actually need to hear.
This is the story of the greatest emotional roller coaster in my 20 years of living. And this is how I am healing. If I can do it, then so can you.
