Hi everyone! I decided to post a solo episode this week and, to be honest, I’m a little nervous about it going live. With a family trip to Greece on the horizon, I’ve had a lot on my mind and been quite nervous about returning to a place with so many memories. To some of you this may seem strange, and I recognize the privilege in having anxiety about traveling to one of the most beautiful countries on this planet. However, as I’ve touched on in a few of my previous episodes, my most recent trip to Greece marked the depths of my mental health crisis. In an effort to help process some of the grief I still hold onto, I decided to share some of the reasons I am nervous about returning to a country that once brought me so much joy. So here’s my story.
