little girl in a big bad world

i'm not ill and i'm not crazy, i just get down sometimes. i wrote in a comment to someone's post that one should never grow up. that the child in us wouldn't like that. well maybe it's because of this child that i don't feel capable of handling the problems or difficulties i'm facing. if people knew, some would tell me to grow up and get over it. or "cheer up, everything is going to be all right."

i know that i can't change everything that i don't like, but i can change the way i feel about certain situations. at the moment i'm not at that stage yet, but i know i'll get there eventually.

and then there are some things that need a practical solution to make them go away. i might be known for a lot of things, but practicality has never been one of them. i'm that little kid again, putting off until tomorrow (or next week, or next month) what i should have done today. until things are affecting my daily life in such a way that i simply have to do something.

i'm sorry that i can't be more specific. but don't worry, i'm still healthy and i'm not broke yet, nothing like that. but i probably should have warned you to skip this entry..

I recognize a lot of what you're saying. It's hard to grow up.

You know, somebody once said to me, "Don't ever ignore the child inside".

We all have one, and I think it is good to listen to it once in a while. Life is too short, and you do not want to look back when you are 60 years old saying, "I wish I had...".

As you say, you are not going totally crazy - so perhaps you should just go with it (whatever 'it' is for you).
