I’ve Been Here Before

The last couple of days have been a bit low. I’m not feeling “sad” or “hopeless”, just “there” with no motivation and little emotion. I’ve learned from therapy and classes, though, that it is important to remember that I’ve been here before. I know the way out.

As anybody that knows me would know, I often work with metaphors. They help me wrap my head around things and then explain those same things to others. One that comes to mind is the old “light at the end of the tunnel” saying. Right now I feel more like I’ve been dropped into a dark cave. I can’t make out any light at the entrance, but I do know that I’m heading in the right direction, because I’ve been in this cave before.

The “Recovery: Expectation vs Reality” picture above also comes to mind.

  1. after the holidays has always been a challenge for me. Grey skies, no green, and cold temperatures always leave me listless. I too know what to do, and I often need a motivating kick in the ass to help me along. Hang in there.
