So far into my move to Auckland very little has gone right. Sickness, the one friend Ive made here is leaving in 5 days (Yeah, 2 weeks in and I’m already dealing with losing a potential friendship…go me), unemployment, and no place to live.
And now….I think I may be getting sick again. Sick or just rundown, I’m not sure anymore.
So, I’m thinking setbacks will always be there. This dream of everything going right; This dream that one day things will be good forever….I don’t think that will exist.
Struggles and problems will constantly be thrown at us. And especially for anyone out there with depression, anxiety, or panic. We will always be dealing with problems that nobody else is. More severe problems.
But what can we do?
Well honesty nothing.
I don’t think our goal is to prevent problems from happening because I don’t think that will ever happen. I think our goal is to weather the storm. Our goal is role with the punches.
Might I even say something very cliche and Disney-esque?
Perhaps we need to be steady as the beating drum?
Why fight the whats already coming right? Pocahontas’s father told her that:
“As the river cuts his path, though the rivers proud and strong, he will choose the smoothest course”
Maybe we are all just fighting too hard? Maybe when other people tell us we need to calm down and smell the roses…maybe they’re right?
Should we all just take a chill pill?
