Such a true statement. I couldn't resist. Found at icanread, along with most of my other Graphic Ramblings. Have you actually had a day where nothing goes wrong? Seriously though. Think about it. Something trivial can screw up your day. Something big can screw up your day. But why do we let it? Because it's all about the emotions. Well that's what I think. . . It's all about how that silly (or big) thing made you feel. Other than happy,good or peaceful.
But we can't really help it can we? We are sensitive beings. We are very sensitive. We make mountains out of anthills. We make tornado's out of a passing wind. It's confusing isn't it? It is for me. That's why I have to always remind myself that no matter how trivial I think something is that someone is telling me, it's a big deal for that person. Why else would they share it with me and ask for my advice? It matters to that person. It bothers them. The drama of our daily lives come alive when friends sit down for a glass of wine and talk... and talk... and talk... If you're so lucky that is. Some people don't have that luxury. And yes it is a luxury. It's a gift. You can never take your friends or family for granted. And remember, they don't HAVE to put up with you sh!t and drama. They don't HAVE to sit listening to you. They want to. Because they love you. But at the end of the day, it's a 2-way street. You have to reciprocate. Am I right? You have to be able to help through their drama. For them to help you.
That's what I try my best to do. And yes, the wheel has turned and I have been turning to my friends lately. Turning to them for advice, comfort and a shoulder to cry on. They calm me down. They talk me through it. They clear my head. But then... also... I have different friends. Different opinions. Different advice. That also confuses me, you know? It's like I need someone to make things right. I need someone to tell me what to do and how to do it. I need . . .
