She said maybe this is a good thing, Christmas away from home, maybe this is a good reality check for both me and mother, that I am growing up. I know to some extent she’s right, but still, it felt so lonely and even though I got to talk to and see everyone through the webcam, afterwards I still locked myself in the bathroom and cried for a long while.
Bah, petty emotional moments! I know I need to get stronger and more distant from the feelings of overwhelming sorrow that threaten to take away my sanity and my courage.
