As we grow up, we are required to take on more stuff that keeps you awake at night. I believe some people refer to these as, responsibilities. They can include; bills, maintaining friendships, taking care of yourself, and having a career.
As an adult, these things are easy to come by, it is actually balancing them all out that is the hard part. Recently I have found myself failing at everything because I just can’t seem to make all the responsibilities co-exist.
I look at this way… I am in my bubble floating around and everything is fine.
To keep the bubble afloat things in life must be good. Granted, I usually find that some things take a hit to maintain others.
- If I am working all the time, it is hard to maintain a relationship.
- When I am trying to save money, it is hard to go out with friends.
- A busy social life and working all the time makes it hard to find time to call home.
- And does anyone actually have time to do laundry anymore?
If one area of your life is empty and the others are doing alright, then it is not the end of the world.
When you are blindsided, and manage to ruin everything, thats when panic sets in, because you will fall right out of the sky.
I manage to mess things up at a rapid pace. Canceling plans, buying too many clothes, forgetting birthdays, and hurting people’s feelings.
Usually I can maintain the ship, but every once and while it happens…
The crash site is far below everyone else, it is called, Despair. It is a horrible place to be. Internal Organs feel like they are tied in knots and sleep is non-existent, not until one gets back into the air.
The only comfort is knowing that other people fall out of the sky too. Wandering around looking for a way back up. It requires mending the many things that were broken. No one should stay in this place very long because eventually it will lead to irrational choices that will make it all worse.
Once there is a plan to exit and return to the sky, the new ship will be ready and slowly over time things will return to normal.
Once again, around the other bubbles, there should be some reassurance that it will all work out. The glass will still be stuck in your skin, but after awhile, it won’t hurt as bad.
