I forced myself to beat my melancholy.

26 May

Had to push myself to start this and force myself to finish it. I’ve been trying to beat my melancholy off with an Ugly Stik (that’s a fishing pole and makes no sense whatsoever). It’s still there and not leaving anytime soon.

I’d watch a Red Box flick or Netflix but am wiped out until payday – the once-a-month payday is killing me, yo! Netflix was cut for the time being so I’ve had to dig into my pencil case and throw my vision down on paper.

Thankfully, it’s not Specter gnashing at me – ugh, hate that guy (a la Gru voice).

Here’s to pushing through.

I want to dedicate this to those fighting through their own valley right now. I admire your strength and courage. All of us here know what it’s like. You’re not alone in your pain and reality. Reach out. You’ll find friends here.

    I wonder if the term accepting rather than fighting is better for some of us. I know that it was when I started accepting, that the internal fight seemed to ease.

      Yes, I agree “accepting” is a word that should go along with “fighting”, brent’. Thank you for your thoughts, my friend.
