Rough Week

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I'm having a rough week so far. I've been mourning the separation and doing a bit of self-introspection. I'm not sure some of it is healthy, though. I keep asking myself what I could have done differently to avoid the separation. I keep hearing songs from the point of view of the person leaving and having to switch to another station because I can't handle listening to it. I find myself crying at the most inopportune moments. I find myself wondering what my husband is doing during the day; if he is finally happy now that I'm not around.

I'm trying to stay positive, but I think that just isn't happening for me. I feel listless and I find it hard to motivate myself to get off the couch. I'm stressing myself out by thinking that I have to get up and do something but inertia is keeping me there.

    When we cast sacred space, we cleanse the area first with a mixture of salt (earth) and Water. I have always equated this with tears.

    Notice what happens when we cry. We feel drained and empty and tired. The tears wash away some of the pain. They cleanse our spirit. They leave new space for us to fill with positive energy.

    There is nothing wrong with having a hard cry when you feel pain. Let it wash over you and drain away. Allow yourself the time and emotions to bring you back into balance. Eat. Sleep. Go through the motions of living. You will get better at dealing with it.

    That being said, Sadness and mourning is not the same as clinical depression. Look into your self and ask yourself if getting outside help would make things more bearable. If the answer is yes, talk to your doctor for a referral.

    I hope this helps, emoticon

    I've been there. It does get easier, but it takes some time. Spending time with my friends helped some. Take care. emoticon
