I can’t help but feel like right now I am trying to shake out all of the remedies. I’m sad? Oh! Well, hide it. No, admit to it. Think happy thoughts. Feel the pain. Eat chocolate. Work out. Help someone else. Ask for help. Maintain a routine. Do whatever feels right.
Ah! It’s like I’m trying to kick a cold as fast as I can.
I don’t know what the answer is going to be here. There’s probably a combination of all of the above that will occur. Truth be told, I want this gloominess to be over and out. Let’s get back to the good and happy. But I’m going to have to wait this out. You can’t slap a bandaid on everything and expect real healing. There’s something important happening when we face trials—perseverance.
