Survived but Now I’d Like to Thrive
Thursday, May 17, 2018
I had an emotional bomb go off yesterday. I was able to hold my peace in the moment as we’ve tried numberously to work through the issues in the past without success. This person in my life just doesn’t get it and probably in part feels the same way towards me. The words they used triggered the deep wounds that I try to be patient with the very raw and very slow healing of. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever known or thought I’d deal with. I guess that’s how life can be.
I switched up my plans and went for a drive and then did some window shopping while I regained my peace of mind. Spending time with myself at my leisurely pace seemed to help it roll off. It was pretty outside and I toured a part of town I hadn’t been to for a while. The greenery was worth noticing and was soothing to me. I did use food in part while comforting myself but I kept to some reasonable treat portions, included having a salad and didn’t let things run wild.
