I’ve had some dark nights of the soul, of course, but giving in to depression would be a sellout, a defeat. ~Christopher Hitchens
Doug and I have been writing our series, Find Your Path In Life. for a while now. We’re working hard to figure what we want in life and how to get there. I don’t want to give the impression that we think we have all the answers and this process is easy… We don’t, and it’s not.
Some days it’s difficult to see a way through to the future. Sometimes I can’t force myself to write anything, or to draw another picture of Doug. Many days I feel discouraged and anxious about the future…But that’s ok.
I’m sure many of you feel this way too, sometimes. Anything worthwhile takes effort, and frustration and banging your head against a wall.
Don’t feel like you’re doing something wrong if you feel doubt, or get a bit depressed. These are normal reactions to change and disorder. Doug and I deal with it too.
Stick to your goals and dreams. Not every day will feel like a step forward. It’s ok to feel unsure about your decisions, but keep plodding on anyways… Sometimes it’s hard for monkeys to get out of bed too.
