No matter what I try and do to change my life, nothing works. I try mindfulness, it hasn’t worked. Positivity just won’t take up residence in my brain. I’ve read so many books about changing your life and making things better that I feel like a self help guru.
People have told me that I should be over things by now. That I should be a happy, healed and well adjusted individual. Oh, if only.
Who sets the time limits on recovery? Who is it that says, “OK, it’s been three years now, you should be over it and smiling now.”? Can they create the magic potion that makes me be healed according to their time frame? Of course not.
People need to back off and realise that the things they say can be incredibly hurtful. For a while now I have been feeling like a failure and all because I don’t meet their targets.
