Things have calmed from yesterday.
Sometimes, it just seems like everything gangs up and everything aligns just wrong to hit every raw nerve and all of the old wounds that are still a bit tender… and yesterday was just one of those days.
Gotta hate those days where every issue and hangup that is normally under logical control decides to all run loose at once. That’s basically that entire last post… and several of the others in the last week show them off well too.
The "build a giant brick wall against everyone" urge is an avoidant coping thing. I know it doesn’t work. I’ve tried it. But it sure feels tempting still in the middle of those times.
Life goes on. Humans are humans, they fail each other. Hurts are hurts, you heal them as best you can, and then you stop poking at the still tender areas.
Easier said than done.
And sometimes, things are still going to hit wrong and land right on one of the still somewhat sore places.
Or sometimes even every last one of them.
I don’t know how to fix the issues with certain friends, or the family issues, or the issues with the prince.
But I do know…. that was not the solution… and that I’m still going to be ok anyway.
Sometimes life really hurts. But the past can’t be changed, and today is a new day.
I may not have what I want. I may not even have what I really need.
But I’ll keep doing the best I can do with what I’ve got, and keep moving forward as best as I can with what I can do with today.
Because that’s really all you can do… no matter what life looks like.
