I wrote this in January of 2019. Halfway through my time teaching The WellBeing Project concepts in the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office (a.k.a. Chattanooga jail).
In August of 2012 I left my husband and the father of my children. I rented a bedroom above a garage a few blocks away from our apartment. The kids were one and two years old. I thought I was sparing our family unnecessary upheaval.
It turns out, the only things that matter are the things that matter to everyone.
