“Loneliness has never been a respecter of persons. The world’s greatest artists, writers, and composers…everybody, has felt this terrible thing called loneliness.” –Billy Graham
Things have changed. Experiences in our lives can do that. I feel like I’m waiting for my life to be normal again. Then I’m reminded that my life has never been “normal” since I was young. So I get used to a new normal, or whatever that means. I do my best to help others while sometimes neglecting myself. I know it’s not good for me. When one suffers we all suffer, I believe. Have you ever watched a loved one suffer? Their pain can hurt you.
Right now I am trying to figure out how to make it through the day because I’m so busy. There is so much to do, and my to-do-lists keep growing. I’ve been maintaining a work-out schedule, and that makes me happy. I have to write each night. I have this hunger to hit the keys! I would like to keep up with that.
It really helps me. I hope it helps you too! I‘ve been thinking about how nice it would be to have a cup of coffee with a good friend. I enjoy social time with others. I’ve been lonely. Recently I’ve been doing more talking on the phone. But it is nice to go out, and actually see friends.
What do you do when things become unmanageable? What do you do when things become tough? What do you do when all that you do is not enough?
