    It’s also possible there isn’t a wall there at all, or not one you would worry about in another mood. I find that on days I am depressed I think everyone is judging everything I do. But on days I am happy and healthy I look at the same differences I have with others and am excited to discuss our different ideas because I like what I have done and want to tell others what’s working well, and also I want the others to give me even more good ideas I haven’t thought of yet.

      Hi Karen,
      Thank you for your comment and excellent point! Agreed, while some “walls” are real and hard to walk through, we also want to be wise in discerning which ones actually are real. Great point.
      Blessings on your day,
      Emily

    Such an encouraging and insightful article! I’m a 1st generation homeschooler and so grew up in the public school system and remember the general views of homeschooling being mostly negative. I do think that has improved somewhat in our nation, but I do still encounter such walls… and there does seem to be a root of comparison. I have found, as you articulate so well, that finding a homeschool community is so vital for me and my family on this journey – to walk with like-minded families. Thank you for sharing!!

      I’m so glad you were encouraged! Agreed, a like-minded homeschool community is SO helpful.
      Blessings on your weekend,
      Emily

    Thank you so much for this article! I just walked through this exact thing with a close friend who is in her 1st year of homeschooling. It was encouraging and helpful to her to know she wasn’t alone and that many of us have walked through this issue. I pray the Lord allows your insights to continue to encourage others on this journey!
