Super Mom


Maybe I’m just having that end of the year depression.

Maybe it’s the holiday that was really stressful (yeah, go figure)

Maybe it’s the little boy who drowned in my pool.

Maybe it’s the reaction of certain people.  The lack of emotion.  The total lack of empathy.

Maybe it’s watching his family come here and pray for him.

Maybe it’s realizing that I’m not that good a mom these days.

Maybe it’s the fact that people don’t keep their word.

Maybe it’s the lack of finances.

Maybe it’s a whole lot of things.

It’s not nice though.  No Merry Christmas feeling. 

Just anxiety. 

Almost feel like I should just put a bandage on my own emotion and make it go away.

    I can relate a little.

    So much has happened this year and I feel pretty defeated. I know I need to go on and I will, but sometimes you want to just throw your hands up and give up.

    I think feeling down is normal considering what’s happened. *hugs*

    • You have been going through a very tough time and even though you are so in control of your life and seem so ‘together’, I know there are times that things are very tough. I always think of you

  3. So hard to mourn during the holidays. Be okay with the feeling not-okay. And take joy in the little beautiful moments that will inevitably breakthrough.

  4. Sorry you feeling so down, Mel. Sometimes things are so unfair. Hope you feel back to yourself soon.

  5. I totally understand how you feel. Many people feel down at this time of year.

    You know what helped me? Making a list of things I was grateful for, as well as a list of goals for next year (not resolutions, but big hairy audacious goals), and then daydreaming about actually achieving all of them.

    Sometimes all we need to feel better is to escape into our imaginations for awhile, especially when the real things around us bring us down.

    It will help you shift your reality, and you really will feel better I promise!

    What happened to you IS overwhelming in itself. I would have sat in the corner… for a very very long time.

    I love you my friend. x
