Internal Struggles With The Eternal

I have been struggling with a lot of things lately.

  • My mother's declining health
  • My drinking problem
  • My health problems
  • My oldest sister's morbid depression and committal to an institution
  • My grandmother moving to another state to live with relatives that I don't trust
  • Extra shifts and responsibility at work
  • The loss of two longtime important friendships back to back last month
  • Issues with my girlfriend who is currently living 2ish hours away while attending a master's program

Suffice to say, life has been pretty shitty mcshadyface in the past month or so. I've been doing a lot of thinking. I need to make some changes in my life. Big 'uns.

 

What all will that entail? Not 100% yet.

 

I have stopped drinking. 4 days with no booze. Go meh!

 

I have also vowed to start exercising regularly and to watch my diet more closely.

 

But I am staring down the barrel of God's gun, so to say.

 

I find myself thinking more about God, souls, destiny and other deep shit. There are questions I can't answer and I am ok with not knowing. I don't need all of the answers anymore, don't want to lose the mystery. I have unfulfilled longings for something beyond my shitty existence.

 

I'm ending this here tonight. Will follow up later or next week.

Hang in there 7. You have many remarkable qualities. You inspire and motivate other people (myself included). I believe you have the insight and resources within you to sort these things out. Keep writing. I'll keep reading. Please stay encouraged. I'll comment again when I can.
