When Do You Give Up?

Many of us try to live to expectations to what others want us to be. Like me, we are striving to achieve balance and wanting equal opportunities in a world where the balance point is questionable.

I’m not sure it’s age, but I think I hit the point where if “You don’t like it, lump it!” Not saying I am perfect or the queen of anything. I just know myself well enough to what makes me happy. I believe other people are so into the stereotypical ideas on what relationships, friendships, and how we should live our lives. Last time I checked, life is a dice roll. You want to take a chance here, then you accept the consequences there.

Maybe I am a little cynical, but how does anyone truly know what makes me happy when they don’t live in my skin or see what I see. My future is up to me. Who I socialize is my choice. Just like I have the power to have a crappy life through bad decisions, I also have the power to have a terrific life by good decisions and excluding the things or people that make me sad.

Have a great day today! After all, if you don’t have a great day… how could you have avoided that?

    Very true, Michael. There are people who try to tell me that they know what I am going through because they’ve had depression, or what they thought was depression, years ago, that they believe I should be back to work by now (having quit my last job because of another setback to my depression and extenuating circumstances, otherwise), that I need to go out more, that I should go to a bar with them, etc. etc., and I often find their “helping” actually makes me feel worse instead of better. I think I know myself well enough to know what I need on any given day at any given time, and I believe that I am doing the best I can under the circumstances. I have a network of people including my doctor and a select group of friends who are truly helpful and supportive. I am the creator of my world, and I march to the beat of the drummer that only I can hear. My world might not be one that someone else would like, but it’s mine. I am pleased with who I am, with how far I’ve come since September 2008, and I look forward to seeing who I am becoming. Life is a process, a journey. It isn’t always easy, and I can’t always see the path, but I believe I’m on the right one.
