recoveringolivia asked: Take things nice and slow! I can understand why your parents wouldn't be on board, but that doesn't mean you can't be friends if you're comfortable with that! I think keeping them involved may help as well, and just being smart about it all. 10 years is a gap, but it's not unheard of. My mom dated a man who was ten years older when she was about 16. It does work for some people, and if that is the case for you then slow and steady will still get you there in the end. What's meant to be will be.

Amazing words of wisdom, Olivia! Slow and steady- I need to remind myself of that far too often! :)

Feeling a bit unappreciated today

We got back to our church at 11:30 last night. I went to sleep around midnight, woke up at 6, got to the office early to set up for a procedure.

I grabbed the wrong tool in procedure 3 times before I got it right, and he just shook his head like I was a kid.

I helped push morning clinic along quickly today because 2 people were set to deliver at lunch.

I assisted tests and urinalysis and cleaning and papers and charting and more.

I wasn’t thanked once.

It’s due time for some self-appreciation exercises. I just don’t know how to. I have no money, I don’t like painting my nails, everything around me is so blase. Any tips?

Amazing day today. Met some of the strongest, bravest teens ever today as we watched The Landing in action. So blessed to be helping start up such a life changing program in our area. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for our church and community.

Y’all are right 

I’ve never felt remotely safe around any guy since the assault incident last year, but it’s different with this guy. 

Like if he offered to drive me to a restaurant I wouldn’t panic and end things with him. I’d go. There are obvs boundaries but the little things don’t threaten me with him.

But seriously mom and dad are never gonna let this happen. :(
