Do you ever feel defeated? Down on your self? How will I survive? Not sure everything will work out? Think …is it me? All those thoughts and worries running through your head?
I finally found the courage to file for divorce, after 28 years of marriage, and 6 years of dating before that. Yes, 34 years of my life. Lately, I have had many of those self-defeating thoughts and worries about the future for me and my children.
I was talking to someone, much younger than myself, one day about all of these thoughts. I told the person that when I get like this I just need to think about the “pep” talk that I would give to other people looking to me for advice.
This much younger and obviously wiser than their years person said “well why don’t you write down just what you would say to other people that look to you for advice… then when you have these thoughts and feel down, pull out the paper and read it to yourself.”
OMG brilliant… this person is definitely a keeper in my life!
