More on Anguish and Despair

A reader writes in response to yesterday’s post:

For what it’s worth, I wanted to pass a message along (if that’s possible) to the writer of the “Anguish and despair” letter to you. There’s so much I could say, but I’d sum it up with: “wow, man. I’ve been there. You’re not alone. I’ve walked through the depression and anxiety and doubts and fears. But I’ve found brighter times and places and can only hope that you will too. And as awkard and painful as the journey was and still is, I’m glad I’m on it.”
I grew up in a Bible Chapel (brethren) in Ontario and have walked through an extremely painful (and all-encompassing) transition. Lots more to summarize, but I’ll stop there.
