Trying to keep positive

Tuesday, May 04, 2021

Mother’s Day is a hard day as I try to prepare mentally for it. Can’t avoid it, ignore it or deny it. We all do things we don’t want to do, hear news we don’t want to face, and have to go thru unpleasant circumstances we would rather avoid. Life is one decision after another and dealing the with circumstances afterwards. I have to set my own feelings aside, and suck it up. I get to be reminded of “it’s just too bad, “, “ I can’t believe” and watch my sisters glow while sitting with their kids and and grandkids. I keep preparing myself for it as I am being honest writing these words I am only doing this to be there for my mom and only because of her I put myself through this twice a year. Covid was my way out and my safety net. I was isolated, and social distancing was accepted. Now, the expectations are even higher and it seems people are being more vocal and aggressive and they don’t care if it hurts or not.

    I am so sorry for your pain. After your commitment to your Mother, emoticon maybe you could plan something that would make you happy and that you could look forward to. Some new tradition just for you.

    Until tomorrow!

    I notice more troubling behaviors as people are coming out of isolation. For example, the drivers are having a free for all on the roads, it seems. And, yes, vocal and aggressive as you've observed. I learned very long ago that life isn't fair. Some seem to have a pretty smooth road in life while others have nothing but bumps in their road. You are a good daughter and mother.

    I understand how you are feeling for many years 'family' events were more torture than enjoyable, hugs I care about you:)
