Elbow: Fragility

Fragility


I have felt more and more depressed as the days go on. I fake my way through everything I do. I feel like a victim, and I don't want to. I lack the inability to make a decision, and I hold a lot of anger in my heart. Slowly, very slowly I see all of this pain welling up to the point of a very disasterous explosion that will eventually detonate itself into oblivion.

I continue to starve, to burn, to weaken and groan when there isn't a sure blessing from what comes next. If I were Heavenly Father I would turn someone like me away. I would take a look at my suffering hands, at my bleeding jaw bone and pity the fact that when the choice came to grow and progress, this lifeless being chose inactivity. Growth comes from deciding. Progress is gained when momentum builds up from the doing. And I harbor non of those actions.

I can't decide, I can't think, I can't conform and I can't put down this debilitating anxiety. I feel lost in a huge chasm of stark static molecules that aren't connected to what I need.

The inability to discern what is truth and what isn't, is enough to make me not want to solve any of the problems that I'm faced with.

I hate that I have been given much. And because I have been given much to too much give, and therefore, all that I have to pass on and share are things that will be of no service to anyone. I have no tools or resources to confront problems that stand in my way, to correct obstacles that are in front of me. And the reason for all of this is the daily dichotomy I am faced with.

It may seem this way, but I see that you have some tools, at least, that can help you. You can see the problem. That's a step a lot of people haven't even made it to yet. It's step one to finding a solution.

Most importantly, this is what your therapist is for. To give you the tools you need to handle your own life and mold it into something your soul-truth envisions.

I love you and feel much of what you feel in my own life concurrently.

Elbow, I love you, too, just as foxx does. Let me know if I can help.

I love you as well, Elbow, but I feel it turning to tough love. I don't think you're going to make much progress one way or another until you start seeing a therapist again. Get to it!

I hate to see you this way... it scares me as I see myself following a similar path. Please hang in there and know you've got people around you who do love you and care for you and want you to find the peace that you're seeking.

I'm seeking that peace as well - it's fleeting, but it's there to be grasped. I know it's out there.

THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE! We can't let ourselves get to the point of "I don't care" attitude. You've got to hang on to HOPE for a better life and future!
