It's that time of year when you get asked, "And what are YOU thankful for this year?!"
Right now this question makes me feel angry, which makes me feel guilty for feeling angry.
But those feelings are valid.
It's true I'm #thankful and #Blessed ... I could make a nice, neat list of all the things I am thankful for and perhaps it would make me feel more grateful...
But, there is always a "but" after them:
I'm thankful for having a nice place to live, but why do I have to live where I freeze my face off all winter???
I'm thankful for friends, but why don't I have more??
I'm thankful for family, but why is my grandma gone?
I'm thankful for good support, but why isn't my family more supportive?
I'm thankful for a good job that has given me breathing room and I like most of the time, but why is my boss so challenging to get along with some days?
I'm thankful for a church to be a part of, but why do I still feel alone?
I'm thankful for dogs, but why don't I have one? Lol.
So, I guess I need to focus more on the thankful and less on the wishing for what I don't have.
My days have more color in them than last week, but not vibrant color.
I am thankful I found this community where I can share some experiences with you. #MightyTogether #mightycommunity #Bipolar2Disorder #ExcoriationSkinPickingDisorder #Anxiety #Depression #Faith
