I was struggling to sleep last night so I began to think as usual
I knew someone who had put his all into a particular thing and things didn’t work out
He was distraught
He was feeling as though there was no point trying anymore
I don’t know how many other things he had tried before this particular thing
Or if that was the only thing he had ever really tried so hard to get
But I knew this particular let down had affected him severely
Suddenly an image came to my mind
Few feelings are worse than the feeling of being stuck in something you hate. I say this all the time.
Imagine waking up every day with an overwhelming feeling of fear and/or sadness because you know you are about to face another day stuck in an ocean when you would rather be out on dry land.
It’s a terrible feeling.
Okay so let me just say here that this piece is probably not going to make much sense when it’s done. I’m not sure, we’ll see. (btw I’m writing this after I’ve written like 4 paragraphs coz I’m realizing that I’m just rambling so I thought I’d give you guys a heads up). But read on its not that bad – maybe you’ll help me make some sense out of it.
