Simpler Times

I’ve been going through some difficult times.  Family issues that kind of break my heart, but that I’m not free to discuss.  What I can say is that it’s tough being the one each individual family member comes to when they need to talk about the others, knowing things that I have to keep to myself.  Sometimes I could just cry, but there’s nothing I can do.  That’s perhaps the hardest part.

Ah well, just feeling sad today I guess.  It’ll pass. There are days, though, when I wish I could go back to a time when the only thing I had to worry about was wiping my face.  Then again, I didn’t even have to worry about that.  It was Mom’s job…

    I’m sorry about the tough family times right now, Aravis. My heart goes out to you and yours. If there’s anyway I can be there for you, please don’t hesitate. At the very least, here’s a mental hug – and not one of those awkward, half-hugs either! A big squeeze. :P Love ya, girlie.

    Thanks Leah! Love you too, and a big mental hug right back at you. *HUG*

    There’s been a change in the family that might make addressing this issue a little easier because more focus can be given to the issue. Time will tell I guess. I hope.
