My earlier posts showed I had started off the best of intentions but this evening was very stressful.
The computer was blocked and I had to call Microsoft Office and pay £90 for new anti virus software to be installed and cleaned up.
My Mother has started with an ear ache triggered by her Sinusitis.
I feel tired mentally.
Sorry your day didn't end as well as it started Roukaya. Did you ever hear that Jon Kabat-Zinn, quotation? "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf"? I guess that's what life's all about. Life is like an ocean. Sometimes it's calm and at other times it's stormy and tosses us around. But we can even it out if we get on our metaphorical surf boards and ride the waves instead of allowing ourselves to be tossed around and half drowned by them. But like all things, surfing needs to be learned. And takes some determination to do. You've done really well in trying to be strong and it'll be a shame if you let every wave wash over you. Hang in there. Stormy seas never last forever. Let some of your mother's problems wash over you; don't react to them. If it's something you can't do anything about from a distance, it's a waste of time feeling down about her. Redirect her to other help. There isn't much you can do about her sinusitis. You aren't close enough. She needs to follow whatever steps will give her relief. So don't let her get you down.
Being tired mentally is OK actually. We mostly all are these days. Some of us are good at hiding it, but it doesn't mean we are all OK. So please know that you are in good company. And that's where this community can be so helpful. Because as one member falls down, another can lift them up. So I feel you are in the right place when you post here.
Sleep on things and maybe tomorrow you will regain some of the positivity which you had earlier today. Take care and sleep well.
Wise words, I love the surfing quote, I’ve never heard that before. ❤️
