I don’t know if it was the eclipse, tax day, natural disasters, anniversaries of tragedies, or it was just their turn, but most people who are important to me had a terribly difficult and challenging time this week, myself included. We all inevitably allow things to build up and either choose to deal with them at a better time (which will never come) or simply ignore the problems outright (which is never healthy). Eventually the dam breaks, your spleen ruptures, the business fails, or she finally says ‘no,’ and things fall apart.Unfortunately, there are no great answers to be found, no easy fixes to download. You cry, scream, punch a wall, have a drink, break something important, or any other futile gesture you think helps you personally, then you go back to work at a slower pace. It’s what we all do, and that’s okay.Things are hard and they will continue to be. You’re tired and lose hope from time to time; you’ve earned that feeling of hitting rock bottom. But at the very least, remember you’re not alone. We all land at this point from time to time, and all those clichés about the sun coming out tomorrow and looking on the bright side of life are not-so-subtle hints at the true, simplistic answer to these complicated questions: it won’t last forever. It never does. You may have to trudge through the muck for a while, it may take time or energy or money or humility, but things will improve. Now you just need to choose to believe that it will, which may be harder than you think, but you can. Now do it.
