So much in life is a decision. It may not seem that way but we choose how to respond to a situation even a bad one. I feel at a crossroads. One one hand I should feel sad, on the other am I letting it consume me such that it creates a downward spiral? For the most part I’ve only dealt with transient loss. In that regard I’m lucky. I feel unprepared for sustained sadness. I know how to skip past the little things but what about huge life altering sadness?
I don’t want to be the one who dwells on sadness and negativity, pushing others away. I suppose there is therapy. There is medication but what of self action and stubbornly refusing to get dragged down?
