    MESSage: Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them.
    ReCap: Kalilah is having a difficult week because she feels like her friends are not showing up for her in the way she needs. Business is difficult and she feels like she is always there to support others and now that she needs the support, she isn’t receiving it. She is navigating having staff shortages, moving her company’s fulfillment center, and going back to doing most of the production and fulfillment in-house. This is causing a lot of stress on Kalilah who is a little over 5 months pregnant. This conundrum of a MESS leaves her wondering, is it worth it?
