There are moments when I see my walls cracking. Moments when my feelings diminish and I feel my whole world is crumbling.
Moments when friends desert me, and even my best friend no longer sees me as a friend. Moments I feel like I am being conspired against, called a worthless and never-do-well fellow. Moments I appear a mediocre and no one seems to understand me, not even my spouse nor boss.
What do I do in those moments of disbelief?
Do I shrink? Recoil into my shell? Do I give up on myself also? Do I let my emotions misfire? Do I let my strength go out? What do I do?
Here’s what I think I will do. I will see through the cloud. I will spot that tiny ray of hope! I will see allow my eyes to find that silver lining. I would perceive that soft-spot that carries my pearl. I would wade through the tunnel, till I see the light at the end of it. I would remind myself that life is not a bed of roses.
That, is what I will do when everybody else, and even me, disbelieves in me.
If you believe, then you can!
