My parents taught me at a very young age, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. (I may still have the handprints on my face or belt marks on my ass to prove it.) Although, I don’t necessarily agree with the methods used to teach me this, I do think that it is a very important lesson to have learned.
Lately, I haven’t had anything nice to say….so I haven’t said anything. This isn’t to say that my life is terrible, but to be honest, I don’t even like being with myself lately …..so I say nothing. I don’t like that I am getting angry over small things, and more importantly I don’t like that I don’t understand why I’m upset.
A friend said to me today, “Are you ok Grace? I’m worried about you.” My response was “No I’m not, but I will be.”. I KNOW that I will be. I don’t know when, but I will get through this slump whatever it is, just like I have 100x before.
For those of you that use music to relate or express your emotions….the song Downtime by Jo Dee Messina kind of sums up what I am feeling at the moment. If you listen to it let me know what you think. How do you handle those days when you’ve got nothing nice to say?
