As much as we don’t like to admit it, there’s a limit to what we can do or how much we can hold inside. I’ve been struggling for the last week or two. I can try to be optimistic but there is always that voice in my head calling me a failure, or a kook. I doubt myself more than a Doubting Thomas and it is paralysing at times. It fills me up and I’m unable to cope.
So I take some time. I admit what I can and can’t do when I’m flailing in the narrow trough instead of wading through the moving ocean. It’s always going to happen. Positivity, unfortunately, does not get you too far when you’re drowning in a to-do list. Sometimes you have to make priority lists and just put one foot in front of the other. At any time in our lives, our volume and capacity for doom and gloom constantly ebbs and flows. It’ll overfill sometimes but other times we’re coping okay. So tell me. If your bucket half full or half empty?
