Part of Every Misery

“Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery’s shadow or reflection: the fact that you don’t merely suffer, but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.” -C.S.Lewis

Today was difficult. Twice I walked into a room with a temper, and ended up calling one person when I was settled back inside my personal prison, and apologized for it. I’m lucky he knows me well enough to know that I simply disliked the unprofessionalism which was outside of our collective control. Praying for better days ahead, especially ones when I don’t feel like punching someone in the face.   

No One Wants To Suffer

“No one wants to suffer. No one wants to be lonely. No one wants to live in fear. No one wants to lose everything. No one wants their heart ripped to shreds. No one want to be sick. And, no one wants to die. But these things happen in life. So the least we can do is be there for others, as we would like others to be there for us.” —Bryant McGill

All too fitting after the last few months. 😦
