I’m glad I didn’t quit

Oh, I wanted to.  September sucked.  October sucked.  November sucked.  And when I say sucked, what I mean is every day was truly awful.  Not just kind of bad.  Truly awful.  The depression was overwhelming.  Just getting up in the morning was a struggle.

Has it really gotten that much better?  I’m not sure….I think somewhere in December something shifted.  It’s not immediately noticeable.  In fact, if you saw my classroom, you might not even notice a difference.  I still have truly awful days, but there are some thrown in there that are not so bad.  No good days…but I have a suspicion I might have a few before the year is over.

When it comes down to it, I’m going to stick it out.  It’s the best decision for me.  Although I sympathize with anyone who quits over Winter Break, and I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
