The Edge

"Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf." ~ Jonatan Mårtensson

Life is so overwhelming right now.

I feel like I am clinging to the edge of a cliff. There is nothing down there, just blackness, and I'm a step away. Everyone is pushing, shoving. The whole world seems to be right on the brink with me.

Are you there too? Hanging on to the edge?

There is big stuff, and little stuff, and everything in between. So much to think about, too much. So many things that need to be taken care of, the list gets longer.

I hear "don't worry", they say "it will all be fine". Deep down, I know that it really will be fine. But the worry, it's not something that I can just turn off.

If only it were that easy.

I just keep holding on. What else is there to do?


  1. I have been where you are.. so many times. Today.. I am ok..but with me it is a daily struggle to stay out of that big, black hole.
    I know how hard it is and how horrid it is to feel this way.
    Holding on is something you MUST do. Also finding someone to talk to.. possibly a medication to ease the depression is also an option.
    Hold on. Please.

  2. Life can get overwhelming - by coincidence I've just posted about this very topic. But I've decided to make a conscious decision to acknowledge and celebrate all the small things that make life good. Baby steps.

  3. I hope things begin to look up soon. :)

  4. I am so there with you right now. I too know it will eventually get better someday as will yours, but I hate those 'don't worry' comments.

  5. Not really much else to do but hold on. Believe me, I can relate to clinging to the edge trying to not be swallowed up by that big black nothingness. Wish we could get together and have a drink, commiserate or something. And I know, it will get better, I keep telling myself that. It's just hard to not be impatient.
