And if this resonates with you at all, please seek out help.  There are ways to manage this risk in a healthy and productive way. Listen and learn.

  • This was eye-opening. Thank you so much for bringing to my attention how much I have been isolating myself and working so many hours thinking I would get caught up someday. I just need to work more efficiently and save time for some people and fun in my life.
