I’d like to say that all is peachy, but I am writing from the perspective of the “struggle.”
And, I wonder if it will ever just “go away,” knowing full-well that I have life-long issues.
So, why hope? Why care?
Tackling the hope situation…
I am beginning to think hoping is just a waste of time.
So, what then to replace “hope?”
Perhaps, “patience” is a better word.
Okay, I will try and be patient… I have been patient for many years, as it pertains to my illness. So, I can continue with that!
I care. Sometimes a bit too much. But, always with the intention that I want things to be better.
All told… I know that many of my sad feelings are only temporary, but so are a lot of my content ones.
I truly have to take life an hour at a time.
How about you?
I remember one of the first times I heard this statement.
And, it rubbed me the wrong way!
Granted, I was with some people that I ended up not caring for.
But, the idea that anytime this statement is made, it is made in a facetious fashion!
So, I guess I just don’t get it. I don’t understand every day, ordinary people!
What is it about every day, ordinary people that you don’t get/understand?
I like to feel like I am making progress, so I think about the idea of “one day at a time.”
It’s not always the case that I am making progress, and a lot of times, whatever work I am doing, ends up in the toilet.
So, I say it. A lot of us probably say it—“one day a time.”
Saying this seems to be helpful on the one hand, but on the other, it doesn’t seem to do any good whatsoever!
Anyway, this is my 250th post. 🙂
What about an alternate saying for “one day at a time?” Any ideas?
Do you ever feel like you want to die?
When the stress piles on, I see just how unequipped I am for dealing with it.
I’ve come along way with my coping skills, but I still struggle a lot.
This is not the kind of struggle that I can just get over.
I haven’t given up, and I don’t plan to give up. Not anytime soon that is.
So, some of you may wonder what keeps me from giving up?
I have a goal, and no matter how unrealistic it seems some days, I am working on that goal.
But, if my health takes a deep dive (which it could), I might feel entirely different about sticking around.
So, for now, it’s one day at a time for me.
