The COVID Quarantine Is Scarily Similar to the First 30 Years of My Life

Here is a piece written by a friend of mine. It’s incredibly revealing, and I never knew this about her. I can understand why. She’s shown incredible courage and patience growing up in that situation. I think we all take for granted how ‘normal’ most of our childhoods were. I’m happy she’s in my life, and honored I had the opportunity to work with her. This is one case where the cypress not only grew in the shadow of the oak, but actually flourished.

  1. Awesome article! I totally get this! My childhood was very similar, minus the father. It’s amazing how having a mother with undiagnosed mental illness can alter you as a person in the long run. I know I have zero trouble with this whole stay at home order, because I am an introvert, I am used to this. <3

    1. I was hoping some more people would talk about this. It must have been incredibly difficult for a child to grow up in that environment. Not abuse but a different kind of existence for some. Thank you so much for your comment!
