That I’m ok, that I’ll be ok, and that I have too much going on to not be ok. And I believe it, I really do. I convince myself to keep going and keep moving, keep working, growing and changing. And then in one fell swoop, it all comes rushing back and the tears start to fall and the pain starts to emanate from within my heart; within my soul. I understand why many shut down; to continue with such pain is as hard as it is to climb Mount Everest. For that’s what I feel is in front of me; a climb of such magnitude that I might never reach the top.
But then I remember who I am, and how I got here. And call upon the strength I know I possess within myself. And I know that while the challenge seems unsurpassable that I will someday be triumphant and overcome.
