I’ve had days, weeks or periods where I’ve been miserable where I felt everything was going wrong
You might know the frustration: some days, I’d wake up and nothing would go right the whole day!
When my coffee machine broke down on an already crappy day,
I felt nothing in my favor. Not even the simplest thing!
Even worse, I often feel completely alone during these crappy times
as I battle and fight to stay afloat with the problems I’m struggling with.
Whenever you’re having a crappy day or week or maybe you’re in a down patch in life right now.
Know that you are not alone.
Jenny started a very simple post that asked, “If you could wish for anything, what would you wish for?”
A very simple question. I thought people would ask for more money, a big house, a nice dress etc.
Instead, most readers opened their souls and the responses were much deeper.
Many asked for better health, to be happier, to be rid of their demons, for their dreams to be fulfilled, for their debts to be cleared.
Reading through the things everyone wished for, I could tell enough about their struggles.
Many of which are health, happiness, unemployment, financial woes.
As I read through their struggles, I recognized in theirs, my own struggles and problems.
The ones that made me feel so isolated and down.
Through this, I somehow felt connected to everyone else who posted. In fact, many of us felt connected.
I didn’t feel alone: there were all these other people with the same problems I had.
It wasn’t just ME. The problem wasn’t ME.
So if you’re having a crappy day or dealing with issues and you feel isolated, know that you are not alone.
There are many of us out there with similar problems.
The beauty of the internet is it allows us to connect to others: To know we are not alone in our struggles,
to find support and love from others even if they are a thousand miles away,
so we can get through the gloom and see the sun.
So, let’s share. What would you wish for?
