Life Is Like That


These last few weeks have changed my life. I didn’t want these changes, and I’d do anything to make things as they used to be.

Life isn’t like that. There are things you can’t out power.

I’ve been observing myself: do I have strength enough; are these changes something I’m able to cope with? What happens, if I break down? If one morning I won’t get up, if I stay in bed, if I refuse to hang on.

Life isn’t like that. There are things you have to do, and the sayings of people are just words with good intention but nothing more.

You must think of yourself. You must take care of yourself; otherwise you won’t be able to help others. You must try to sleep and rest.
Life isn’t like that. There’s going to be a lot of sleepless nights, nights filled with nightmares, days filled with anxious and painful moments, sorrow and worry, and some occasional glimpses of hope. Maybe.

Life is like that.

I won't say anything, as it doesn't help. But I would like to be able to help. However, I know that you must do it yourself.

Thoughts are enough, Hèlène.

Mick said...

My thoughts come over to you as well, Susu. It appears from the artwork, however, that you have made it already from the dark to the light. Turn around!

Peter said...

Not easy to know what to say - if anything! A stupid idea: Maybe time for a trip to Paris? That could make life a bit different - at least for a while?

Take care!

Maybe my pieces of art are made in those hasty moments of hope, Mick.

Peter, traveling is impossible right now, but the mere thought of sitting on the west bank, makes me smile. Thank you.

So very true, all of it. Nobody knows how it will continue.

SusuPetal said...

I don't even know, if knowledge of future would help, chrome3d.

Sometimes change is good, in a long run.

Hope you'll get the sleep! Enough sleep. Life is easier to cope if you're well rested.

Good luck.

SusuPetal said...

Some changes can be good, Lepis, that is true.

No comments! Thinking takes time...

SusuPetal said...

Thanks for dropping in, Gil.

Elegia said...

Yes, that's a part of our life. But hopefully not always. But often. Or something.

SusuPetal said...

Yes, something, Elegia.

Kutuharju said...

Often we are but bystanders in our own lives. It's so easy to say: 'leave your job if you don't like it, leave your hubby if he doesn't give you what you need, move out of this country, if you cannot stand it here any longer'. But no, NO! Life is not like that.

Hugs!

SusuPetal said...

True, life isn't like that, Kutuharju.

SusuPetal said...

No, not philosophical, only life, brocasarea.

brocasarea said...

SusuPetal said...

SusuPetal comes from the Frank Capra film It's a wonderful life -there is a girl called Zuzu and the petals of her rose, tells her father (played by James Stewart) that everything is well. Zuzu's petals...made SusuPetal out of that.

Filled with truth. My thoughts are with you.

brocasarea said...

SusuPetal said...

Thank you, A.M.

Brocasarea, thanks.
