In alternate universes I’m many things. In one I’m a young mother with children in primary school. In another I’m married to my first love. In another I’m a newly graduated nurse.
All the people I started my nursing degree with are all graduating. They’re uploading their photos in their gowns, putting up posts about passing their state exam.
I feel left behind. I know that path wasn’t for me. I can’t help but feel like I failed at going through with it.
I’m being too hard on myself again.
