Fake it til you make it, they suggest, so this seemed a good way to make myself feel tougher and stronger: The fighter still remains.
I am blessed. I have my family around me when challenges are thrown my way, their support is needed and valued. My writing has kept me busy and books have been a great distraction.
We all walk in different shoes, my tough is not everybody’s hardship. Compared with many I have things easy. I am grateful to those who’ve reached out offering support. I’m not alone, I feel affinity with many good friends, even in this secret space.
Embracing the new normal, lets help each other adjust.
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev’ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
“I am leaving, I am leaving”
But the fighter still remains, mmm mmm
Lyrics from The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel
It’s OK not to be OK, this is a safe space to talk if you’re troubled too.
