Coping or something like that.

My breath hitches and I hold back the flow of tears.

This brief moment has been on repeat too much lately. I could cry at the drop of a pin right now. The miscellaneous comment from my boss, an email from a friend, a NickJr commercial. You name, I'm tearing up.

Coping by definition means to deal with and attempt to overcome difficulties. I think I even read in there somewhere it means to do so successfully.

Damn you, Merriam-Webster. What if I don't feel like being successful on these difficulties? What if I just want to hang my head and cry? What if I just can't?

Deep breathes. It's crazy how much they help the soul. Deep breathes.

So, here I am, coping, hoping, praying that I come out of this situation successfully, more so, gracefully. Lord knows, extra emotional obstacles were the last thing I needed this week, but for some reason he's placed them here anyhow. Way to up the ante Big Guy.


  1. Aw, hope things get better for you soon! I've had emotional obstacles for what seems like the last month. Deep breaths help, so does a hot shower and tears. :o)
    Hang in there, you'll be in my thoughts.

  2. So sorry your going through a rough time. Praying it gets better for you.

  3. Keep your head up gal...we'll be praying for you!

  4. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers

  5. I love how you wrote this. I know someone who may like to read this and feel less alone.
