So Sick And Tired

Really I am. Misdirected frustration for sure.  I’ll snap out of it once we get Lulu’s diagnosis.  For now, I’m gonna bitch and moan.   

All this Plan B bull shit about how failure is really success. The door to new opportunities.  Everything happens for a reason. Blah blah blah.  Mark Walberg and 50 Cent had criminal histories but look at em now.  Or some super star named Sarah who was fired from Virgin Airlines and Atari only to make it big later at Nike and then Flywheels or some such place.  Blah, blah, blah. 

I’m sorry but fuck that.  They are not representative of the whole.  They are exceptions to the rule.  The rest of us commoners muddle along.  Rags to riches my ass.  

Sure, you can pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start all over again. It’s just not the same as Marky Mark.  Few reach his height of superstardom.  The rest of us enjoy a mundane existence.  I believe failure is not life ending but failure is certainly not game changing either.  Can we acknowledge that it’s ok to take a pause and feel bad for a second? 

So FB quit sending positivity articles to my newsfeed.  Articles that are supposed to make me feel better but instead make me feel like shit. Of course it’s my choice to read or not to read.  Guess I will be rearranging my schedule and my agenda of things to do to include reading only articles that are not saccharine laced bull shit. 

Dang, that felt good! 🎢I feel good. I knew that I would now. So good so good. I’ve got you!  πŸŽΆ.  I should vent more often. πŸ˜‚

As always more to come.

  1. hahaha I’m glad you got it out, it made me feel better too πŸ™‚ Life isn’t all rainbows and lollipops. My go to line is always, there’s nothing I can say that will make you feel better because when I’m in a mood nothing any ones says makes me feel better usually makes me madder. You’ll be alright, is the worst. It will get better. Really? Is that what you know? That’s my usual thought. Now saying that It usually gets better πŸ™‚ but hearing that when I am in the thick of it doesn’t make it better LOL

    1. I’ve started agreeing Or at least acknowledging… yes that sucks and I’m sorry you have to deal with … I’m here for you no matter what. That type of response takes practice.

      1. Yes it does take practice but it’s the best thing to say, because nobody REALLY wants to hear, oh it will be ok especially when they are in a turmoil. If we thought it would be ok we wouldn’t be in a turmoil lol. Of course people mean well and have good intentions. Then again what’s that say…the road to hell is paved with good intentions πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks for sharing this. I am even more validated. Repression was my middle name. Not any more! More and more I am trying to find that balance. When Osho offers “β€œThe negative ideas of your mind have to be released, not repressed by positive ideas. You have to create a consciousness which is neither positive nor negative. That will be the pure consciousness.” mind blown. “It is what it is” has taken on a whole new meaning.


  2. Hahahaha I love this. You’re right. Nothing pisses me off more than when people tell me to smile or so many have it worse or whatever. I wish more people would understand that it’s not helpful to attempt to change someones mood or mindset.

    In that vein – I feel you dude. Bitch as much as you want. Regardless of your circumstances, you have every right to every feeling you have. I’m going to go get funky now.

    1. Yes! Validated! For SO many years I did not think I deserved to feeling my feelings. Hence the blog name – Grin and Bear It!!! Story of my life! Stuff those feelings down and be perky Pollyanna. You go get funky and me? I am going to sit here and ROAR!!!!! πŸ™‚

      1. Hell yeah!!! I’m gonna write about this shortly. I’m so sick and tired of women feeling like they’re supposed to smile or “suck it up” or that being healthy is only happy. That’s horseshit. Be yourself. Be authentic. Your emotions are not only your nature but your strength!!! Even if it feels like they’re beating the hell outta you. You’re sitting in the fire and not burning, that’s strength. That’s a warrior. That’s a beautiful lioness raising her cub 😊😊😊❀️❀️❀️

  3. The bigger the adverbs and adjectives, the more hyperbole and hype, the worse the advice. It doesn’t matter the disaster. Most of us get up, find somebody with some jumper cables, get on. The “losing is winning” experiential BS? Wrong. I never made the rock start to nobody to back again trip. My starter died in the parking lot. I got fired because I needed a haircut of had a quick middle finger. Life just is. Like the weather in Texas.
