The choice is yours

This time of year can bring many people alot of pain. You do your best to keep busy with mulitple chores, Christmas shopping, extra workouts at the gym, long hours at the office but you just cant kick the feeling. Your not alone. Many people find this time of year especially painful because it is the time for togetherness. Sometimes you can be in a crowd of people and still feel very alone. Ive spent a few holidays without a significant other and it doesnt have to be so bad. I think alot of it is mind set. You have to convince yourself that you are going to be OK and then believe it. Self pity can be quite smoothering if you let it consume your life. I understand hurt, heartache, and loneliness. The kind that comes from deep inside and makes it tough to breathe sometimes. I look at those moments as waves. If you go to the beach and you stand in one spot, the waves will crash into you. However, as soon as they hit, they are gone. You have to look at life that way. Its filled with hard hits and things that make us hurt but what doesnt kill us makes us stronger. Decide that one person is not your Universe and stop wasting time wondering what happened because it happened for a reason. Learn from it and move on.
