The Holiday season is upon us. This is the time for joy, laughter and enjoying what we have.
But for so many, its a sad time. I am not going to get into the dark time brought about by emotional disorders, but instead trying to reach out to so many that have a difficult time
Loss of a Loved one. I don't think I could even come close to putting into words what some one must feel after lossing someone so dear and close them. My heart reaches out to those who are experiencing this.
Loss of a Parent. I only separate this one from the one above, because the feelings are different. That does not mean that the pain is any less or more. I lost both of my parents in the past 10 years, my father, honestly was a blessing for him for all the suffering he had. My mother, 2 years ago, came from no where, no clue, etc. These were your parents, the ones that molded you into who you are today.
Depression. All year long, there are others doing everything, now when my family or others need me, I can't be there. I cant help cutting the tree down, I cant help bringing it inside, I cant help putting the lights on it. You can see, I can not
help with anything! Depression big time happens about now
Anger . Along with number 3 comes number 4. Damn, I want to be able to do all the things to help make my family have the best possible holidays. But instead, I cant do anything Deep depression
Reality I cant change a thing about whats going around me. The best I can di is to make sure is that I am at my BEST...When I am at that level, I know I can help.
Sorrow Here is where I sit in a chair, just moping. Sure things have not come my way medically, so, I will sulk in the darkness . But wait, what about my spouse and children, they also had to suffer so much while I am in this condition.
The only words I can put here, is that I am older and wiser. I've made so many mistakes in my life, I have created the environments, I mentioned above. I hope that I can continue to show others that there are so many paths and trials we need to take
