Sometimes it seems like my personal truth, but as it turns out, my truth is universal. “As a result”, “because”, “although” and “despite” play a larger role. The four drawers state my truth when making a life-changing decision. It was not about a pregnancy, it was about ending a marriage, but it fits anywhere a woman has to face a harsh reality.
As a result of circumstances at the time
Because I had to go on
Although it wasn’t what I wanted, and
Despite all evidence to the contrary.
