First off, it is OKAY and normal to feel this way. Don't feel guilty for not magically feeling like your life is perfect, just because you got your heart's deepest desire. It's another "both together at the same time without blending the two" situation. You can be grateful and blissful and happy AND at your wit's end, sad, mad, and other hard stuff. BOTH make sense! So here are just a few of the many resources you should keep in mind and use should you need some extra support. You'll be in good hands!
