It’s Not This Hard

Love shouldn’t be complicated. Work shouldn’t be complicated.

Happiness and peace of mind and wellbeing definitely shouldn’t be complicated.

We make it all so much harder than it’s meant to be.

We’re not supposed to agonize and feel anxious and read into things and worry about details day to day.

We’re not supposed to overanalyze everything that happens to us, from the text we receive to the interviewer’s expression or why we did or did not make the sale.

We’re not supposed to wonder how things are going. Or how we’re doing. Or whether we’re doing okay. We’re not supposed to question how rock-solid our world is, and whether the whole thing is stable as we hope, or could come crashing down.

We’re not supposed to feel rescued when something small goes our way.(We’re not supposed to want to feel “rescued” at all.)

We’re not supposed to feel devastated when small things don’t go our way.

We’re meant to understand that things sometimes not going how we want them to is life, and not getting our way all the time is part of living it.
