I am finding it real hard. I feel vulnerable too. I feel and see myself aging and not in a good way. Death seems closer than I would like it to be. I am not even near where I hoped to be at this time in my life. Scary.
Just take it one day at a time and be happy to be alive For that day. None of us know the future but being worried all day about what may or may not happen is not using your time wisely. This is a journey and we will be there every step of the way if you let us give you support and learn to love who you are right now 2146 days ago
Live for today for tomorrow may never come. I think you had a least one good example of that. We all age. We all wish we had done something different or better. You are where you are. What you can change is only you, your attitude, your outlook and how you want to live today. Do something healthy, do something responsible and do something fun. You can! 2147 days ago
Life just sucks sometimes. I too have had negative thoughts and feelings drifting in and out these past few months. I think things could be so much worse than what they are. I could have a husband who beats me, my children could have severe disabilities, I could be struggling to put food on the table and so on...so why do I feel so lost and depressed? Why do I lack confidence? Why am I so chronically unhappy?
Reach out to your friends and family and hang tough, this too shall pass.
I'm at a loss for words my friend. I can relate to a lot of what you said. I'm sorry I havent been around as much as usual this summer. Remember that you are not alone. You're in my prayers dear friend.
When I think about my age and the way things don't look like they used to, I say to myself "Gracefully surrending the things of youth Roxanne". I am soon to be 57, and that is okay. We also just buried my favorite aunt yesterday and I feel that was a celebration of her life and now she is up with all of her loved ones walking without those glasses, oxygen tank and beat up body. Life can be unbearable at times, but it is still good. You are blessed...count them. 2147 days ago
