Bonjour my lovelies, Do you feel depressed on a regular basis, or just get that monday blue, especially in winter times? I’m prone to be more depressed in winter times, I do not feel like myself in the dark winter months, and it got worse the older I got. And of course I’m like anyone, I get a bit low from time to time, I just manage it better now than I used to. Anyway, last week I was a bit low, and I thought I would call a friend to lighten my mood a little. So there I am, dialing my mate phone: Hello, how are you doing you old fart? ( Yes I do say that to some of my friends, actually I love it when my friends insult me, I love tough love.) Anyway, the reply was, Nah mate, I’m having a shit time right now, so I inquired into the matter further and asked him what was up. After listening for about 20 minutes about his latest relationship problems, with my following advice on the matter, which he totally discarded (I found out later that month) I decided, hell shit I’m just going to ring another friends so me to I can vent my lows even if trivial (they did appears to look that way now) My second friend, which I video called instead preceded by crying and telling how low she felt and how life was all fucked, how much she messed up the night before and how her past boyfriend was a dick. So I went to work, and listen, gave the best advice I could give, told her that she felt rubbish most likely because of the chemical unbalanced in her bloodstream because of hey heavy alcohol consumption of last night session, that is wasn’t real, that like me when one aspect of our life is not doing too good, we all tent to dramatise and think everything is either fucked or lost, or both, when actually it is not as bad as we say it is, I guess we all do this to get some attention from time to time, like if all we are looking for is someone to give us a big hug and tell us it’s going to be alright. Well, after those two phone conversations, I totally forgot how down I previously felt, helping others just override my own very trivial life issues, I even laugh about it, but the cure was right there staring at my bald head of a face. When you feel low, a little bit depressed, try to phone a friend who you may suspect is having a tough time, hell phone an old friend you haven’t heard for a long time, I guess when you help others you forget about your own issues, because most of the time, in hence sight, there are no big deal. In fact problems, is the only way we can grow, so I try to welcome them now, and rather then find something to hide behind or use alcohol or drugs like before, to lower the pain down, I try to own it first, let it pass through me, because I know I’m far stronger than this feeling, how ever tense, difficult or sad. The feeling will pass just as it came. I love you, you can do this, and thank you for listening, or reading.
