” Grow As We Go” by Ben Platt

This is a new song for me, just heard it for the first time just now, but it is beautiful. It reminds of of a terrible time in my life, but also one of the most profound.

Amid the smear campaign, in late 2018 after I had quit working and my mental health was so unstable, I came really close to leaving my husband. I had packed all my stuff, even my computer, and was going to leave and run away.

The Mental Health Helpline, and the person at the other end of the phone, helped me see that it wouldn’t help, the feelings would remain within me, no matter where I went. They were a great resource for me back then!

Over time, my husband and I learned to grow through what we were going through as a couple and this song reminds me of that.

Let me know what you think of this song and what it means to you.
