I’m not sure Kerry. I chose happy every single day. We all have pain & anger. But life is an echo. Those who keep putting their stuff out into the world will continue to get it back. I’ve dealt with pain and grief — incredible grief that entered my life at age 12. I’ve been assaulted several times, had a child AND a husband with a chronic illness and lost my marriage. Some people would find plenty of reasons to wallow in the pain.
I choose to be happy. Every day. And I certainly don’t choose to hurt the people who love me. I spent 7 years in therapy — but even then it was to sort my emotions out so I ‘felt’ better, not so I ‘acted’ better. If that makes sense.
I can’t summon any sympathy for that. I. Just. Can’t.
