The pain in my heart

festers as tumescent old wounds are pried open and scratched. I am the sum of choices made, options discarded, chances blown away. Today, my cloistered world is blue, black and green.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference

(anon)


Bawl. Repeat above. Internalize. Move on.

Sometimes bawling is good. and mostly internalising is good too. Pain however is not so good. Hope the sun shines soon!

I forgot where I read this before but it is really true. All three things are extremely hard to do. It takes a lot to move on, change things and know the difference.

Thank you all for the kind support, virtual hugs and tea. I feel better now, not completely, but better.
