My Chair Broke Today

I am quite saddened by the loss of my chair. You may be thinking it is just a chair, but when I quit my last job, I brought this chair with me, when new chairs were purchased through out our office a couple years ago I said, "No thanks, I'll keep mine!" I have a deep sentimental connection to this chair and spending my last few hours at work today in another chair just felt awkward.

Life feels awkward right now. My chair is just an allegory for everything. How do you adjust back to normal? Do I want to be normal? What can I do for the orphans if I stay here? What can I do for them if I go back?

My chair was comfortable...

Sorry to hear about your chair. Let yourself work through the process... denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Someday you will look back on the chair with joy and not sadness. But it is too soon. Give yourself some time.
