‘Are you sick of talking about it yet?’, my darling friend asked me over coffee on Monday.
‘Hmmmm…’ I contemplated, staring into my latte for the answer to his question.
‘Sometimes I am. It really depends who I’m with.’
‘Yeah… I understand.’
And he did.
When your whole world falls apart, people don’t know what to say.
So they either say nothing at all, or what they do say is often not entirely what you’d like to hear.
There’s nothing more frustrating than being told to stay positive when life feels amiss.
‘But honesty, what do they think we’re doing?’, I say with a smile.
When your whole world falls apart, find somebody whose world is crumbling too.
They understand you’re sick of being on repeat, but that you might want to chat about it all day.
Because with them, you can talk how quickly your priorities change, how your perception of existence has completely morphed and why becoming present and living in the moment has changed your life – without sounding like a complete twat.
They get it. And you get them.
