Ms. Ashley, you’re quickly becoming one of my favorite writers as I read your work. Thank you for being so open and authentic. 🙌

I’m sorry that you’ve had to endure so much in your life but I’m glad that you seem to be healing some now.

Though I’m a man, I can relate to SO much of what you’ve written. I’m also 36 and feel like I’ve had similar personal growth and discovery in my 30’s. Is that a thing people do? Some sort of phase?

Anyway, keep growing and finding a way to enjoy life. It’s too short not to!
