This has been a hard week, and I don’t have a lot to write about today.
There’s nothing terrible going on. Just too many demands, too many obligations, enough things gone wrong to make me feel like I cannot cope.
I’ve been here before, and I’ll be here again. What is interesting about this time is that I’m actually stopping to think every now and then: how am I handling this time of stress?
I handling it so far by trying to do a little at a time, trying not to worry about things I can’t control, and trying to make the best of what I am going to be doing this weekend even when I don’t want to do it.
I’m not always successful at doing those things.
There’s one bright light at the end of the weekend that I’m looking forward to, a dinner with a friend that I haven’t seen since she moved away over a year ago.
Other than that, it’s put one foot in front of the other and get through it.
I wish I could sail through with no worries and no depression and no anxiety. I wish I was at the place where I could just focus on the now for longer than a few minutes at a time.
How do handle times like this?
