We’re Still Here

Really depressed right now.


Super glad and grateful we’re all in one piece.

Hey, looks like I was wrong. Russia hasn’t touched off the big one yet. The Ukraine could be doing better, but the rest of the world remains relatively safe. Even though we’re never promised another day, it’s nice to have one.

The world still goes on. Again, I’m so happy and grateful for the peace and prosperity that flows into our lives easily, endlessly, and copiously every day. We have our share of rough times, but somehow we still prevail.

Now for a more personal share.

I’m tired, family. I’m tired and I just want to go home. Sometimes I don’t think this planet is for me, nor was it ever. I’ve had a lot of those rough times as of late, and survived only to wonder how many more are out there. I’m not the self-deleting kind, so no worries there. I just wonder why se are set upon the Earth to experience suffering, loss, hate, and all manner of other misfortunes.

I am wrestling with my depression a lot these days. Job prospects are looking pretty sad. Things are kinda tense here at home following a personal matter. It just wears me down. It’s all wearing me down.

I keep asking why, but the Universe never seems to really answer. I mean, is a straight answer that hard to come by? Why are we here? Why do bad things happen to us?

I appreciate you being here. Thank you for stopping by. Have a good week.
