is this the new norm?

my heart hurts. and all i can do is wait.

fighting to constantly hold back tears. trying to focus on other things.

praying for answers and patience and comfort.

waiting for normacy and the slightest feeling of contentment.

if this is the new norm, i'm going to have to get used to it.


  1. I'm sorry. The only word of advice that helps me during times like this is "look beyond the gray sky."

  2. Everything will be okay. I promise you... life has a funny way of pulling the rug out from under our feet when we are feeling stable, believe me, I live like that daily with a dying step-father. But I want to tell you that you need to take one step at a time. Do things for you and try to see the positives or beauty around you. Journaling and blogging really help me - just expressing how you really feel and not holding back. You don't need to pretend to be okay, because what you are going through is so hard... let yourself feel the emotions and just know that life gets better. Things happen for a reason and it will get better. If we didn't have barriers such as these, we wouldn't be able to see all the wonderful things in life and wouldn't take everything for granted. I don't know why things happen... it just is. But as a stranger, I'm telling you I'll be here for you!! So hold your head up sweetie, things will get better.

    BTW Thank you for the kind email. Made my day :)
