It’s hard to realize how much a word that someone may say in passing can have such a devastating effect upon you and your mood.
I try not to let the judgements bother me, but sometimes it makes you stop and truly look at what state your life is, where it’s going and what it’s lacking.
The other person may never realize the weight their comment may have had on your life. You really can’t blame them.
It’s how you process the remark, which basically is…
“get over it”
How do you get over your life? What suffering you go thru on a daily basis; this isn’t a cold or the sniffles. It’s what mental illness and chronic pain has done to you. Never asked for, no one action.
So you tell yourself, it is what it is and you move forwards. But when you express yourself and try to escape the constant state of things. And someone comes back at you with ,’get over it’.
The sand castle falls down.
So you start again, rebuilding the walls.
I tell myself, ADAPT – IMPROVISE -OVERCOME
Some days it works, it’s not working today. Thank God for therapy.
