“Scratch Off Gently with a Coin”

Posted Oct 23 2008 6:05pm

No, I am not talking about a lottery ticket.  It is my moods.  I try to make them go away.  I gently try to remove the layer of pain that blankets me, hoping underneath is relief (or maybe, $1000.00). Many times I find more pain.  Other times, I find the relief I need.  I just keep going in the journey.  Scratching slowly, to avoid more trauma.  Sometimes life brings trauma and nothing happens gently. 

I would like to avoid life.  That is not possible.  To maintain my sanity over my moods in spite of life occurring, I need a variety of things.  Here are just a few:

  • Family
  • Good friends
  • God
  • Medication ( I hate it but it is where I am.)
  • Therapy
  • My writing
  • Excercise (Yoga and Meditation)

What I mostly need is to treat myself gently.  I must give myself time to heal and time to feel.  I also need to live.  I just keep on in my journey and pray that when life is not gentle, I will have the tools to continue.
