Weebles Wobble

I am stubborn, by nature... but there have been many times that I was ready (and attempted) to throw in the towel, to give up. Still, life wasn't done with me, apparently, even though I was sure I was done with it. My mother, in my darkest depression, use to repeat a line that mostly pissed me off at the time. It was, "weebles wobble, but they don't fall down." She said that I was apart of her family, of her blood, and in her family we wobble and we don't fall down. I responded with defiance and, "You don't know what I have to go through!!!" and slamming doors at this point. :-/

But after I got out from under my depression, I do understand what she was trying to say to me now. Many people will come across you and will push you into the dirt, the mud, and the grit. But, you don't have to stay there, if you don't want to. You can keep getting back up and ******* them off, by not letting them win. This weeble will wobble... I may even fall down... but I won't stay there. Not anymore. ;-)

Thanks for this. I'm going to remember that tag line now. It came at a much needed moment.

Thank you for sharing your story. I think it's great that your mom supported you through your depression; at least she tried with that song.<br />
<br />
I too felt like you where I was very much done with life but for whatever reason life was not done with me and that used to **** me off.<br />
<br />
I am not nearly in the really dark place I was a year and a half ago, but still, everyday is a struggle, some worse than others...but here I am still pushing.

Yes Shadow, I am aware it takes time, to stand when you fall down I have fallen quite a bit, but I have gotton up, every time.I agree I do gain strength,by dealing<br />
with my problems..Thanks for your incouragement.<br />
