Some Days Are Shit Sandwiches — Here’s How To Deal With Them

Today was a rusted bucket of smashed crabs wrapped in old socks soaked in dead skunk toes, hot mess, stress, hairballs, and assholes.

And that’s okay.

Today was a good day dressed as a bad day, a blessing disguised as a burglar and I pick-pocketed my own heart and robbed what could have been by focusing on all the wrong I did. Today was a bad idea. Today hurt, and I’m scared tomorrow will be worse.

And that’s okay.

Today my demons made an appearance, evil spying eyes through the chain-linked fence of my mind and I tried to play it cool, thinking a greeting and a bit of begging could warm their cold and send them fleeing, but it didn’t and they’re still here.

And that’s okay.

Today was a day when I made mistakes, when I let myself get the best of me and I failed life’s little test of me and then decided to solve my problems by making more and bigger bad choices, and it didn’t work and I let her down, and I let them down, and I let myself down, and I wish that wasn’t true, but it is.

And that’s okay.

Today was a shit sandwich wrapped in burnt plastic served with dead maggots, lost battles, rotten apples, and a side salad of bug tongues, scabs, and turds. Today was gross.

And that’s okay.

Today was a reminder I’m not all there yet. I’m rough edges with rough patches, more second glances and less second chances. I’m missing pieces and peace, still a student in a class where its pain who teaches the hard way about the work I have to do, so many more things to ponder and improve. I’m hard work in progress.

And that’s okay.

Today was a regret-wrapped riddle I couldn’t solve, and I fought for answers and tried them all except one – I give up. I surrender. I wave my white flag, shrug, and sit down. I accept not knowing how to befriend my doubt, and my pain, and my pride. I ache tonight.

And that’s okay.

Today was an avoidable, unnecessary, incomplete and internal battle that ended in defeat for a part of me I had to release, but I’m not quite sure that I feel free.

And that’s okay.

It’s all okay, and after all, tomorrow is another day. TC mark

Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again

Nothing scares me more than someone loving me one day and deciding they don’t want me the next. Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.
