pulling on a string

I always felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Never a good feeling, the waiting, or when it drops.

While you’re waiting, you build these invisible walls to protect against the dropping, but they’re just tricks to convince yourself it won’t hurt. It always hurts, there is no way around it. The only thing that changes is your ability to cope. When all you feel like doing is cocooning yourself in blankets, you’re forced to pull both shoes from the ground,  put them on and get on with your day. And maybe that’s the best thing to do. Yeah, maybe.

  1. I hope that the shoe dropping feels a little less ominous now. Because sometimes all we can do is put one shoe in front of the next,

  2. Feeling a lot more myself now. I’ve been waking at like 5.30am for the past few days and going into crazy work mode and it makes my mind wander when it finally rests.
