I was told this weekend that being cynical is a reasonable way to approach situations; and this quote is coming directly from a source I met when I was 15. So while this made me feel better, I couldn’t help but think if there was a better way to approach the impending holiday season. Then I realized…I got nothing.
With a birthday smack dab in the middle of this “holiday season” and all of my loosely planned winter activities stripped from my calendar (which I should have figured would happen as he managed to ruin all of the autumn planned activities too), I can’t help but to feel bitter towards the world.
And as my aforementioned source also stated this weekend “I hate the world” (also with a holiday birthday and going through a similiar situation as me) I realized that he gets it.
There is always going to someone out there who gets it; we really are not alone. I get to go to sunny Florida for Christmas and sit on a white sand beach and collect shells (crossed this off my bucket list last year…and side note, I could have sworn I had a bucket list post which I now am unable to find – expect a follow up) while I leave all of my worries and cares up north.
I don’t know if I can end this post well, since I don’t know how it will end for me. I know I am happier now then I was a month ago and that I have surrounded myself with all kinds of good people. For now, it is time to keep my mind busy and shake it out of my head and just live on.
