Cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's takes over a loved one's body
Cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's takes over your body
You gain weight. You gain more weight. All of a sudden you are 100 pounds more than you used to be and you can't stop eating, because it comforts you.
You are faced with a choice to advance your career in a new state, but would have to leave all your family and friends behind to start this new life.
You feel lonesome in a full house.
Debt consumes your life. You lie awake at night agonizing.
Life leaves you feeling utterly lost.
You hate your job. Everyday of work strips a layer of your being.
You are in a dead end relationship. But you are too scared to move on alone.
You have to say a final goodbye. Maybe it is to a friend moving away, or maybe to someone who has passed.
Stress and pain are met every night with whisky and wine.
You have a secret tearing you up inside. Maybe you are a homosexual and you know your parents/friends will never accept you for you, or maybe you cheated on a loved one, but could never tell them.
You realize you don't need someone anymore.
You realize someone doesn't need you anymore.
A son, husband, brother is fighting for our country overseas. You live in constant worry.
We all have pain and suffering. There is no one who can say to me they haven't experienced at least one thing on this list. I am dealing with a few of these items. I cry, a lot. I say, "Why me? What did I do to deserve this?"
You may have lost your mother, got dumped and lost a best friend all in one year. That doesn't mean what you are feeling is any greater pain or sorrow than someone who has never experienced a loss like you have. Maybe that same person has lost control of their weight. They feel up against a wall, horribly sad, self-conscience and deflated.
Suffering is not a competition.
I am not a saint. I am not even a good person in many aspects of the word. But one thing I don't think you will hear anyone say is that I am not kind. I try and put a smile on my face, everyday. Everyone is suffering in some aspect of the word. The least we can do is be kind to each other, support one another.
Sometimes all I want is for someone to give me a hug and tell me that everything is going to be ok. Is life going to be ok? No, it will never be ok. There will always be new issues that arise. New challenges to face. Whether small or large, each of us will always be fighting a battle of some sort.
Let's make a pact, at least here in blog land, to say and do kind things, because we are all suffering and fighting our own battles, behind closed doors.
Hug someone today.
Hug your mother
Hug your brother
Hug your best friend
Hug your boyfriend or husband
Live alone? Hug your General.
