Down Time

You can define this several ways.

A period of rest or recuperation.

A time of unhappiness…. or

A time of stepping outside of it all, to reflect and consider.

Sometimes disappointment cuts so deep it’s difficult to see a way out of the emotional cul-de-sac and a period feeling nothing at all can be a welcome break.

I’m not talking about wallowing aimlessly, but rather a time where I show myself the same kindness and understanding I would to a good friend. With enough time and space I can usually find the sense, the purpose of it all.

If we retire to lick our wounds and recover then we should come back again, stronger and more self-aware, but only if we leave bitterness behind; bitterness can play no part in healing or moving on.

Here’s to tomorrow.

  1. I like that approach – treating yourself with the same kindness and understanding as you would a good friend.

    1. A very good friend once quoted to me,
      “Love thy neighbour as you would love thyself”.
      He went on to point out, we all get so caught up in the neighbour part, we completely overlook the fact that it starts with loving yourself.
      Thanks x
