Thinking Out Loud

Sometimes in life it would be nice if there were a manual. Know what I mean?

There are times when finding the right thing to do is next to impossible. We’ve all been there. Whether it be love, family, friends, work, or some other dilemma. Wouldn’t it be nice to just for once be given then answers.

Hell yes!

Life is hard, there is no denying that. Ironically, when all is said and done, we all want the same result. Happiness.

Being human. That is the fucker. And there is NO getting around it.

Sorry. You. Are. Stuffed.

The good news is that…we are in this together kids.

Hard as we try to put on a brave face, when life throws those curve balls we are all just as vulnerable as each other. No matter what face we wear.

So, what can we do?

I can tell you a million, zillion stories of shame, sadness, embarrassment and heartbreak but the truth is, would it really make you feel better about your own life?

Life hurts. Whether it be dramatic or subtle, shit arises which we need to face. The question is, if none of us are perfect why are we so afraid to reveal our frailties? Why are we so scared to admit the truth. To admit our failings. To cry out, “Help Me.”

Could you imagine if we just took a deep breath and spoke the truth. If we dared to say what scares us, what we really think and to shout from the rooftops that “This isn’t fucking fair.”

Could you imagine?

It isn’t fucking fair. That is the reality of the situation. Sometimes our hearts break, our family hurts us, our children worry us, our work consumes us, and a million other things threaten to drag us down.

There are no easy answers. All we can do is the best that we can think of at the time, and to acknowledge that we are not alone. We really are in this together, however hard it is for us to admit.

So, the next time life drags you down, and it feels as though there is no easy way out, remember, you are not alone. We are all just as fallible as the next person. Do your best. Your best really is enough.

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. ~George Bernard Shaw
