“The Scariest Game of Hide and Seek”
I was a wife, a mother, employee; but I was no longer myself. That was a very scary thought. I was lost. Where had I gone? Would I ever be able to find myself? Was it wrong to go looking? Should I have just stayed right where I was and learned to be happy? I tried that for a few years. I tried to find fulfillment in my career, but my job was not my passion.
I gave all of me to my husband and my kids; but there was still a void. I was lost. It was like the most intense, uncomfortable game of hide and seek I had ever played. I was scared that I would not like what I found if I kept looking, but I was also deathly afraid that if I stopped looking I would completely fade away into darkness. Outside of my fear of dying, this was the most crippling fear of my life. I was lost. Have you ever felt like this?
