Sometimes, hard days come. And strike. Deep.
Maybe they come for everyone. But it does not seem so. In any case, this does not help. These days, you’re alone.
Who lost a great job, who lost a loved one, who lost health, who lost their dreams, who took the wrong direction and is now gone too far. Different severities, of course, but, again, that does not help. The stomach is crumpled, and there is no relief.
You imagined a very different future. It was there. Now it seems gone. Maybe it’s really gone. A completely different reality.
Sometimes, they add some small details, like no money or no family or no friends.
In these cases, if you have someone who listens to you, they will probably advise to look somewhere else, see someone, do something. But you’re not ok anywhere, with anyone. This thing will stay with you every time, everywhere.
There’s a lot of good advice, for these situations. Books of them. But the only thing you want it’s someone who fixes your life, gives back your future, or gives back someone else. And nobody can. Or maybe doesn’t want.
Today, that’s my turn.
I know good bits of advice. But I lack the energy for them. So, what to do today? What to do tomorrow? What to do the minute to come?
I’m lucky enough, because I know I’ll go out of this, someway. How, I don’t know.
So, I have to resist. Day by day. And I cannot get stuck. I must have a future. Alternative dreams are not ok, today, but maybe tomorrow they are fine. Still, they are so far.
It will be hard work, again, I know. There are no alternatives. But I’m not able to do any single step, today.
So, let’s return to the basics.
I have to let bad things go. In me, and outside. Bad people, bad emotions.
And let good things come in. Good people. One, at least. Small targets. Small steps. Good thoughts will follow.
Nothing will change by magic. And, surely, it will not happen today. I cannot force myself, but I have to start the right flow. Bad out. Good in. Resist. Life will follow.
That’s my way.
But not this night.
