It's Been One Helluva Year.I wonder, sometimes, about the phrase 'when life gives you lemons, make lemonade'. It sounds like it should be such an easy thing to do, doesn't it? I'd like to share with you how I do it, off and on...
A little of what's happened to me this year has been; suffering badly with bpd and depression, losing 2 friends who were closer than family, having the social services take away my beautiful babies and fighting tooth and nail to get them back, been on a rainy, stressful holiday and now, my Grandad has passed. He died on Wednesday. He brought me up until I was 8 and was the father who loved and accepted me, the only one I really had. Imagine my sadness.
How do you get through? One tiny detail at a time. One problem at a time. One situation at a time. Cry when you need to. Laugh as often as you can. Give and receive love from those special to you, whoever they may be and let yourself be you, don't be hard on yourself.
I guess I just wanted, from sharing my story, to salvage some good from the bad. Some hope. Hope is the key. I believe with all my heart, that there is always hope.
Love to you
