Living Into the Answers, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

I hated traveling as a child. 

It always felt like something terrible was going to happen to me or to whoever I left behind.  The anxiety was often unbearable.  I would throw up with motion sickness in the car, feel depressed when we arrived wherever we were going, and cry at every changing moment.  All I wanted was to go home.

It seems much of my life has been filled with meaningless activity.  In my younger years, without much of me to operate with, I tried to please as I was hoping for value and purpose.  I worked at jobs I hated, tried to stay in struggling relationships for the “sake of the children”, and was mediocre at parenting.
