Okay, self. Let’s try something new for a change. I mean, the old, swirling darkness of hopelessness and despair was fun but it’s a bit…played out. You’re boring, self. So, in the interest of self-improvement, let’s think of the positive things that are happenening in your life:
Your boys – Ah, those maddeningly delightful, mischevious and sometimes hard to handle boys. You love them. You are proud of the men they are becoming. You try and do your best by them, sometimes you need to try harder, but all in all they are happy and healthy young men.
Okay, I will try and finish this now. Optimism, come back.
The new job is working out so far.
My boyfriend hasn’t left me yet.
His daughter hugged me and said she loves me.
I don’t have anything else.
I wish I was dead.
