standing still

Saturday, June 02, 2012

I feel motionless in life. I've been battling a bout of depression that has me questioning my worth and value as a person. consequently I haven't been able to make decisions or follow through with much of anything. So I haven't lost any weight. I also quit smoking (day 6) so I've turned more frequently to comfort eating.

I can objectively look at my life and see where things are going right but it feels that the good just doesn't last.

Makes me not even want to try.

BUT I keep going. I know that my depression won't last and I will see my world with better eyes.

    I suffer from depression, too; it's really hard to dig yourself out of that hole. It's good that you can see better times ahead and that you recognize it may take some time to get to them. I, too, have learned to just be patient with the depression rather than fighting it which always seems to make it worse for me, not better.

    Because we travel a road through life there are going to be those bumps and bruises and emotional injuries. Although it's frightening to think that your current good things won't last, if you keep that objective look focused, you'll see that you've lost good things in the past. And it might have been painful. But, they've always been replaced with a new good and that will happen in the future, too.

    Hang in there. Have one of your kids brush your hair or paint your toes. Write down one good thing about the day every day to keep the light at the end of the tunnel right at your finger tips. You can do this.
