There’s so much we are supposed to do every day. Exercise. Meditate. Pray. Slowly eat small portions of mostly vegetable meals off of blue plates. Do puzzles to stay mentally sharp. Develop your spirituality. Apologize. Forgive. Do a daily moral inventory. And that’s before breakfast. I know all of this from the email alerts about living right, the ones I actually read. The others stack up and their unread presence makes me feel guilty. I’ve read enough to know that people want positivity. Sometimes I don’t have any. I’m frustrated be the futility of my job search. I don’t have the funds or partners to start something on my own. I feel like someone’s got to come along to help me change things. Or I can’t get that blast of inspiration that’ll show me the way. There, I’ve done the taboo–written out the negatives without embracing the challenges that have made me the person I am today, a person who now advocates for world peace, holds no ill will towards anyone, and has the answers to all of life’s questions which I share during world wide speaking engagements during which I promote my best selling novel as my family surrounds me, beaming.
One response to “There’s a lot of pressure to be positive. Is it taboo to admit I’m discouraged and haven’t come out on the other side yet”
I want you to be happy and successful
