Hope: I Am Enough

I don't know if anyone else is like me, but I have problems. Looking at Facebook, is sometimes seems like I'm the only one. But I don't post every time I have a bad day, and I guess neither do you.

I didn't want Drumpf to win but he did. That night it felt like someone had died. I have received that news late at night before, and it felt similar.
