Every now and again we all have our emotional melt downs. Every now and then we need to shed a few tears. Every now and then 1 it's the only thing that eases the pressure we feel and stress that we're under. Sometimes there's a period of time when we're emotionally distraught as we wait "to allow the pendulum to settle" just a bit, as a friend of mine put it earlier tonight.
Heartache comes and goes. We all know the feeling of a broken heart, a lost love, a family member missed so much it 4 brings us to tears. It's a natural thing and a fact of life. We each deal with the crisis in our lives in different ways. I'm no exception.
I went to lunch with Bill today, wonderful friend that he is. I had several drinks containing alcohol, and in no time I was a blubbering heap of redheaded mess. Then I was smiling and laughing. Then I was in tears once more. By the time he dropped me off back at home, I was smiling and laughing once more.
I'm lucky 7 to have the friends that I have, new and old. Somehow they know the right things to say to me in order to cheer me up, make me feel better and help the hurt to go away.
It was darkness earlier... nothing but darkness. I saw no light at the end of the tunnel.
There is still no light at the end of the tunnel, but I'm no longer blinded by the darkness.
