The Things You Learn As Time Goes By...

Just when you think that you have endured all the pain that you can possibly absorb you find out with a brutal slap in the face that you can indeed withstand yet more pain. It really is amazing how the human spirit is capable of soaking up pain and dealing with it no matter what the circumstances are or how gut wrenching things may be. We are resilient. We endure. We persist and like the tenacious grizzly hold on with all of our might even when we want to say, "Enough." We overcome and live to face another day.

With the new day we will still have pain but it will have lessened a bit. You won't feel as if you have a hundred daggers in your heart, you will only feel a mere 99 and that will help you to breath more freely than you did the day before. Life is a great and wonderful gift and yet it can exact such a toll on our psyches that at times we may find ourselves adrift in a sea of despair but there is always hope to serve as an anchor when we need it most and we no longer list about unmoored but rather find our way back to terra firma more or less intact ready to move on with our lives one step at a time. We survive and in the end we thrive. It will all be okay in the end if you just have faith and don't allow yourself to cast hope aside.

I realize that the above is filled with cliches and that it is less than forthcoming but sometimes even when your truth probably should be spoken loud and clear it is better to keep one's own counsel because more pain, bitterness and rancor could result from speaking out about that which hurts you. Sometimes silence can be your best friend.

Ciao!
