John, I will remember these words. Thank you so much for the comprehensive response. I agree with you: time will do well to settle these feelings and as I learn more about this new world, I will navigate better and feel less of the negative feelings I may have had.
Your words are quite encouraging. Especially the parts about my life as a book in progress. I will continue logging in here and sharing my story. I am grateful to Medium for moments like this one.
