Up, Up And AWAY...

So in case you didn't notice, I haven't been the happiest of campers
lately. The last couple of weeks were particularly bad. An existential
crisis will do that I guess...

Anyway, in the meantime I learned a lot about life and me and the
people I care about. And of course the viability of using exercise as
therapy- mentally it's good, physically not so much... I feel like I
have the joints of a 90-year old and a new appreciation for metal

Anyway what I learned was that it's ok to admit to being miserable,
and it's ok to ask for help- having a support system is more than

So after forcing myself to discuss things, and admit that everything
is NOT ok, I was taken off to dinner last night where I had the time
of my life, and I'm being taken out tonight... And while it's not all
that different to what I'd usually get up to, it feels different
because I think I'm different.

And I was early to work today, because getting out of bed wasn't
difficult anymore. I'm not reluctant to face the world.

So I guess it's just thanks to everyone for putting up with me! I
don't promise to be happy all the time, but I will try and stop doing
it all on my own!

I'm with Leia and Sarah.

It ain't easy and it's OK to admit that you're struggling with it. If it's all the time, then get help.I mean professional help; it does work.

If you're not at that level, then try not to be too hard on yourself and stop every now and then and ask, "What's the worst that'll happen if this thing I'm stressing about doesn't work the way I want it to?"

Ja it's so true, people cannot be happy all the time. It almost seems like people get impatient when we are not happy.
