Sometimes you feel really sad

Sometimes you feel defeated, let down, dragging your feet

Some days you wonder why you get out of bed at all.

Sometimes your partner surprises you, ends the affair and you're left confused.

Sometimes you want to go to your friends and tell them everything that's on your mind.

Sometimes it feels like there is absolutely no reason to be doing the thing you call life at all.

Sometimes you get jilted.

Sometimes you get rejected.

Sometimes you feel like you're just not pretty enough, not slim enough or not healthy enough.

Sometimes you look at the other couple and say "I wish we were them"

Sometimes you look at the popular person and say "I wish I were them"

Sometimes you wonder why you seem to be the only person enduring hardship.

It's a ruse,  a gimmick, a foul play. It comes from out of left field. It's a strike out.

It's a bad ball.

You called it.

Because when times are hard, money is down, loneliness sets in and the last ship has sailed off without you in it, you just know... you  feel that there's something worth hanging on for. There's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. There is will. There is room for making things different. There always is and always has been.There are other groups, jobs, opportunities and there will always always be pitfalls.

How you get consumed by them is your choice.

You can give them all the attention you claim they don't deserve... get angry, frustrated and diverted from your potential happiness, from your one true goal that you are sure you can get.

You can drop your problems and run for the hills.

There is no right or wrong way to do it, really. Nobody said it was easy

And nobody ever said the right way to do something was going to be painless. Maybe it just hurts so much because you haven't built up an immunity.

But there is no way it will ever be that hard again. If you don't already know that, you will soon enough
