Music / Real life

it seems real

The last few days… damn… the sheer volume of need around me (and within me… who am i kiddin… i’m fairly dripping with it myself)

i say to C that i feel like i’ve been moving from wound to wound at work… trying to help people who need help and all the while feeling utterly invisible to people around me. i am simply what people see they need or want… nothing more… nothing less.

i turn to each soul and vacillate between hugging them and slapping them soundly across the face.

i know how you feel… snap out of it… i see your pain… stop your whining…your feelings are real… it’s just a trigger… it’ll get better… it’s just the way it is…

i say these things to myself too

Shoulders back

Chin up

Suck it up, buttercup
