thank goodness for a perfectly timed phone call to a friend. being the eternal optimist that i am, i still find myself (when in a funky bad day pattern) struggling not to complain every 2 seconds.
even when one downloads and rereads several times, the list of ways to deal with difficult people, and yet, your blood pressure still soars and you want to cry and know that you have to deal with it because you are a grown up now and no one will take care of it for you; and this makes you so mad and sad that you just want to run away...
it's really nice to hear a friendly voice on the other end of the phone, that just wants to catch up for 10 minutes or so. that tells you that everything is possible. even if everyone else in the world tells you, you believe it because it came from a source that knows you and believes in you even if its in the smallest ways. a source that doesn't see your every day struggles like others do. they just see you.
thank goodness for that.
