Usually when I think life is getting better from day to day, all of a sudden things are getting worse. Things hit me very hard during the last couple of months because when I just got over some bad news there were new ones, even worse, coming in. And then, sometimes, just when you need some support, you realize that there are people that only make you feel worse when they're supposed to make you feel better. So I suffered in silence and somehow made it through.
I'm still miserable sometimes, and I know I have the right to have bad days, just like everybody else. I still think that life is unfair sometimes. But I'm also grateful. My family, the greatest family anyone could imagine, hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to health and accidents. Whatever illness you can imagine, be sure someone around me has had it. Car crashes, too. But they're all strong people and they all survived. I'm sure that we won't always be that lucky but for now I just have to be grateful. Sometimes I moan about little things (I'm only human) but then I realize that I am the luckiest person because 1. I have a family who I love and who loves me just as much 2. we do get second chances (or third, or...).
These are just some thoughts I'm having right now and I don't want to make anyone feel bad. If anything, I want to encourage you to share your feelings (sometimes it's easier to talk to a stranger than to people you know) and to think about the things that you are greatful for.
