Feel sad then feel better.

I have realised that the only way to resist change would be to never meet or respond to anything or anybody ever again. If somebody comes into your life and then leaves it again – use it. Every interaction you have changes you in some way; you always have a response to something or somebody. Sometimes change feels really sad and I have learned to ignore this sadness at my peril. Ride the feelings, relish them, learn from them. You will become a better person. Somebody recently told me that it takes courage to feel sad. So stop pretending things aren’t as bad as they are……..

Feel sad and then you’ll feel better.

By the way…. The above was partly inspired by a very good book I read recently: ‘The Other Side of You’, by Salley Vickers.
