A (Wee) Bit of Reverence
From a Reader

“I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much your writing’s helped me. I used to think I was the only one dealing with these issues, over-thinking everything, failing to take action, stressing out about over-thinking, and then starting the cycle over again. Your writing revealed that I’m not alone, and the cycle can be broken. I really can’t thank you enough for that.”
– Ryan, 24, Seattle
