waveseer Posted May 25, 2010 Share Posted May 25, 2010 Hi all, I've been putting myself under an excessive amount of pressure lately to keep up with and stay on top of all of my day to day life details when normally I can take things as they come. Then I remembered, everyone I've ever lost that mattered to me I lost between the third week of April and the second week of June: - serious college bf graduated and left - gave daughter up for adoption - first marriage went up in flames - long term bf walked - father died - cat died There are probably more, but I can't remember them right now. I think the added pressure I am putting myself under to accomplish even more than I normally would is to prove to myself that I'm okay and maybe if I kept busy enough the season would pass without me taking notice. Luckily I can come here and tell you that I'm not so together. I wish my first reaction was not to avoid the grief, I know what can happen when I avoid my feelings and it serves nobody well. I am glad that I can accept life's losses and chose to keep breathing even when I'm afraid that some new loss will happen during this year's "major life losses" season. Link to comment
