I’m all for life lessons that put the smaller things in perspective and make you appreciate what you have (in spite of what you don’t) but I’ve about reached my limit.
Sure, I’ve had my share of disappointments in the past two years, but watching those close to me suffer is sometimes even harder. I don’t do well with helplessness and not being able to make someone dear to me stop hurting is sometimes more than I can bear. The only things that helps is the irony that my own past suffering puts me in a position to offer true understanding.
How do you cope when life keeps handing you lesson after lesson?
