Faking, Not Really Feeling, Inner Strength

I’d need way more fingers and toes, to count the number of times I’ve had to fake inner- strength. I was born to super-stoic parents. Personal crisis of any kind was kept on the D-L, no matter how bad things were. So even when my mother suicided (I’d just finished the...
