“Black Days”

One “black day” is manageable, most of the time.  Many of them crammed on top of each other can feel insurmountable.  These “black days” have been plentiful recently, and respite is nowhere in sight.  Instead of feeling desperation and defeat there is numbness.  Even anger is unable to be roused leaving a sense of complacency and acceptance.  There is still hope for the seed of happiness to sprout and grow, but for now, it is firmly buried under the weight of too many “black days.”

    We spend so much time trying to dodge the next load being dumped on us, we often forget to stop and look at what we have around us.
    And if we recognise happiness when we see it we have to really push ourselves to take the gamble that it’s real
    I wish you well in your recovery..
