Morning Edition - 9/3/08


The Nothing
It’s an odd time in my life. The details are many and the retelling too uncomfortable to take-on. You see, I’m at a place right now where I feel ‘the nothing’ has taken over. It isn’t a matter of the loss of my relationship – details on my trip to Florida to come in the near future – or even my disappointment and the sense of despair that engulfs every aspect of who I am. To be clear, I’m not a victim or a complainer; I’m simply recognizing that I have to be honest and recognize that ‘the nothing’ has somehow drained my spirit. As is always the case, I will regain my footing and get it together, but sometimes folks believe that there are those of us that don’t suffer depression, anxiety or a sense of disappointment with our environment, or worse, with our reality.

On Blast
Having challenges is a fact of life and overcoming them serves to make us stronger. How would you describe ‘the nothing’?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

"The nothing" you speak of has taken me over many, many times...this year in particular. Loss of a core friendship, loss of trust, loss of my job and income, loss of self-assurance...the list goes on. Like you, I am one that expresses my thoughts and life happenings thru words---and I know how it is when you just don't want to complain or come across as the victim so we remain quiet, reserved and thoughtful. It's about recognizing that we're human and there are times when we just need to feel our feelings and get thru them---without the input or daily support of those who love and care about us. I feel you Cocoa...the sunnier days of your life are ahead. I have faith in you, your spirit, and your resolve to get it together once again. Just remenmber that I, and many others, love & care about you and are always here when you're ready to join us. *Big hugs*...

The "nothing" would be like a helpless void that comes and leaves you wanting nothing. Leaves you caring for nothing! The "nothing" to me would be a state where you might not wanna go on! I don't wanna be there...

Please get out of that "nothing" state!

Its gonna be alright pa. You are going to make it through the rain ; )

You are just a little numb right now, in a state of shock. You'll get through it, with my crazy azz pushing you if I have to.

Ooooh, child things are gonna get easier....

"The nothing" has been a part of my life every few months. The first couple of years that it happened, I was always scared. But then, you learn to cope with it knowing that it will pass.

I'm in that state right now, but i'm not going to let it keep me down.
