So many months of holding it together, coupled with the intense preparation of Stitches, with nearly no time to myself in between Stitches and starting my work week, has led to a day of crying, a first for me at the shop. Today my resentment towards the fact that I depend on other humans to help run my business peaked. The fact that every time an employee decides they no longer want to do their work, and that I am left with the work, that all others can walk away, and I can't, is so overwhelming and can be so lonely. And that I as a business owner have chosen this is...to bring this feeling into words is nearly impossible due to the overwhelming nature of my anger and sadness. If I could just do it myself, I would. But at this point, I can't. And for that fact, there is no photo.
I know it will get better. Just know, that this is all part of the story.
