The last two weeks have been particularly stressful for me on a personal level. You know how they say…. when it rains, it pours… I was going through something like that.

Bad news seemed to be coming at me from every which way and instead of opening up, I retreated into a dark place. I opened WordPress several times, started a new post and didn’t write a word. It isn’t always easy to put things into words. I admire people who can write through their pain and stress. I discovered it wasn’t such an easy task for me.

I have always been the kind of person that people lean on. Well, that just makes it harder for me to lean on others. I don’t know why. It’s not that I don’t have people more that willing to help, it’s just something even I don’t understand. I’m sure a psychologist would have terms to describe it.

Thankfully the clouds have lifted from some of my troubles and for the others I have accepted it and trying to move on. But, one thing’s for sure, it’s not that easy.
