How about one word… LIVING
I’m pretty sure everyone hits a point in life where they think to themselves, “Why am I here? Am I really living? Is this all that life has for me?” The answer at that moment is, NO! When you have to question it, you are doing something wrong. You might be solely focused on work or finding someone to marry because your biological clock is ticking. There’s so many things but the point is you are so worried about the “what ifs” and the “what could have beens” that you have officially lost your grasp on happiness. TRUE happiness. Just like an AA or NA meeting, the first step is admitting you have a problem. Pull that into your reality check. Your “problem” so to speak is you are NOT living! What makes you happy? What do you enjoy doing? That’s where we were when we first met. Merp and Mush lived their lives by pleasing EVERYONE but themselves. Merp has longed for a relationship for quite some time. Mush has always been in one relationship to the next. Mush has told Merp many times, “when you stop looking and focus on your own happiness, that’s when he will come”. Well reality check for Mush is that if she keeps going from one to the next she also will not find happiness. Now we’ve got it. Merp is still single and Mush is now single going on 5 months. We have gone to countless concerts, spent many nights out with friends and even with just each other doing what WE want. Something as simple as talking on the phone while one was on her deck and the other on her sidewalk just staring up at the stars is a small example of just doing what you want because, YOU CAN! Living, it’s why we’re here. I’m not saying quit your job and I’m not saying give up your dreams but we need to live. We’re only here once. There’s no reason to waste your life being unhappy! Now the only problem you are left with is finding out what exactly makes you happy. You can’t find it without tears and you can’t figure it out without facing your fears.
