Its probably a good thing that I keep going, but you know sometimes its so hard to keep going. We all know that to some extent I think. We all have had to deal with plenty in our life and maybe some of us had an extra helping of it.
Its when the physical pain and discomfort get so great that it is all I can do to hold on. There are things that I won't share with others because they are far too personal, but when they cause physical issues, it gets much tougher in life.
I keep going somehow. I don't know how. It feels like it is often a lonely path and yet, somehow and in some small way, I manage to keep going. I often wonder if I'm using up my free passes of to keep going, but so far, I still have some left.
Even when I feel ignored...
Even when people I know seem to shun me or avoid me or ignore me, I keep going. Don't ask me how I do because I feel like an outcast when that happens. I feel like it is more than I can bear. I feel like in those moments, that I'm all alone. Most likely I'm not alone, but it feels that way.
I keep going, even through the heartache and rejection and fear and triggers from the past. No, none of them are easy. Sometimes they lessen in intensity and at other times they come at me full force as if there is no tomorrow.
Even when everything sucks...
I keep going even when everything seems to crumble away. I keep going even when everything seems to suck. If I knew the magic formula, I'd share it and become a millionaire, but I have no idea what keeps me going.
If your life seems pointless and it feels like you're all alone, just keep going. No, I'm not going to promise pretty rainbows tomorrow, but what's the alternative - to stop and miss out on something greater than we can see right now?
If your life feels like it is too much too bear, take a moment and just sit down on the rock. Its okay. You can get up when you feel like it regardless of what the world around you dictates that you should do.
All I know is, I don't have all the answers for my own life and most likely not for everyone else. I just keep going and I do that by keeping going. Yes, it wears me down at times, but I know no other thing than to keep going. In some ways, its the only punishment that I have to give to those that made my life a living hell.
