“Backed into a corner”… Exactly how I feel. Stressed and pulled into so many different directions. Feelings of sadness and anger are sometimes so overwhelming. Work, family, commute, decisions, money are wearing me thin.

I want to be stronger, I want more control and most of all I want to learn to be happy and to let the little shit go. This is a constant struggle for me. I need to work more on myself, like I used to. I think a part of me is scared of what I may find… Scared of how far I have come and how much work it is going to take to get me back where I want to be.

A personal post tonight accompanied with a sample of Backed Into The Corner, an amazing single from Amy Stroup. Highly recommended, so much so that I am recommending that you purchase it.

    Thank you Jill, it is always so much more comforting when others can relate.

    Marcy, I wish I knew! :-)

    I’m right there with ya too Rachel.

    I’ve managed to back myself out of one corner this week though. Sometimes I think it takes just as much courage to admit that you can’t do something or handle something as it does to soldier on through it.

    Well said Agnes indeed.
