Real

I don't want to write this. I've been struggling for a long time. I post posts to lighten mood, but I'm tired. Reading the Bible, wondering if it works. I'm just wondering if I'm the only lost soul. If my shame has made me feel like four lettered expletives. My soul wants to post happy, not right this moment

  1. I think all of us are down at one time or another. I also don't think that you're the only one feeling the way you do. Sending you healing hugs and love, Regine. ♥

  3. It's good to be real sometimes. It lets others know they're not alone in their own struggles.

  5. Regine, I understand your feelings. Since my recent lupus diagnosis, I struggle with sharing on my blog my true feelings, especially because I'm dealing with so much pnysical pain and fatigue.

  9. No, you're not alone. We all go through trying times, and I'm sorry you're having one right now. Please surround yourself with good things and maybe treat yourself to something special. I will say a little prayer for you, my friend.

    love, ~Sheri

  10. Regine I suffer with you. You are not alone. Just be yourself. If you aren't happy...don't force it! Let it be. We cannot be happy all the time with the strife and the stress in our world these days. You know that you will be happy again...let it happen. You know that you will be sad again...let it happen. I feel your sadness, your anger...please don't let it consume you ❤🌹❤

  11. Regine, be who you are. You don't need to post "happy" to make us think you are happy. If it helps YOU, then that's fine but remember, it is YOUR blog. You are in charge of it.

    That said, please know that no matter what you see on other peoples' pages, know that they have their frustrations, their challenges, heartbreaks, fears, illnesses, worries and concerns. They may or may not write about them, they may be different than yours. But they are real to them. We all do life in different ways. I often think of Princess Diana who seemed -- and especially in the beginning -- to have everything and yet was crumbling inside. She wasn't alone.

    I hope you can be gentle with yourself in these times. Find something that comforts you or enjoy a special treat -- flowers for yourself, or something that will give you a smile. Sending light and love.

  12. A modest postal package comes for your birthday - Dear Regine - just live and be happy!

  13. Post what you want to express, after all it's your space and people would understand you for who you are. The bible is a living word and with faith it becomes alive in our hearts and mind. Prayer is the most important as it communes us with God. Like you, it's not everyday that I'm happy too but when I pray and believe God gives me that sense of peace, joy and hope.

  15. It is your blog, so feel free to post whatever you feel, when you feel it! You're certainly not the only one who feels tired and lost, I think we all do sometimes, just unfortunately some of us feel that more often than others. God will never leave us though, even when we feel like we can't see Him.

  16. I honestly think there are a lot of people that are feeling "off" right now, including myself. It's been a weird 10 days for sure! I think the planets are moving or something. Hang in there!

  19. You're not the only lost soul...I think everyone goes through that at some point and has those feelings. There's nothing wrong with questioning things. I think a lot of people relate to you but just don't have the courage to share it in a public forum like you do. Stay strong and trust in God. Praying for you! Have a great day!

  22. It is a normal feeling. We all have our ups and downs. It will pass. Go out, enjoy the nature around you, e.g. flowers and plants, etc. You will feel much, much better.

  23. You're not the only one that feels that way. We all have our worries, doubts and sadness. There is no faith without doubt, someone said. We need to question things sometimes because that is how we grow. Happiness and sadness are often interconnected. Our emotions change from day to day, depending on many things. Many people feel lost. This world is no paradise, and often it is hard to find strength to fight on. Hold on!

  24. I am always a believer of finding a way to express your feelings it may not have to be on this blog. maybe writing it down in a personal journal, or confiding in someone you trust (friends, family, therapists). If you feel comfortable sharing your personal feelings on your blog I think you should go right ahead because a blog is all about you and your voice. In my experience it is best not to repress things because that can exacerbate issues.

  25. You don't need to pretend to be happy if you are not. It's okay to feel depressed and express it. It's actually healthier than saying "I'm fine" when you are not. Part of what heals us is being able to be aware of our emotions both happy and sad ones and working through it from there from an authentic place. If we pretend we are happy all the time, then that is not authentic and actually makes us feel even worse. Have you considered praying and therapy?

  27. Hi Regine. It's ok to feel a little down sometimes. We're only human. I've not been the same since my granny passed. I'm feeling better but there's a big part of me missing. She was the glue in our family and everyone just went insane after she died. That was the most challenging, dealing with crazy family members. It's getting better now because i decided that I'm not going to allow them to steal my joy anymore. After that I remembered who I was and things are looking up. Finally!
    A simple choice changed my perspective and my mood.

    I do believe God gives us challenges to make us stronger.
    A chance to rise above it all and come out better. And in turn we can pass our strength onto others that needs it. The best piece of advice I've gotten when nothing is going my way is "be the source of what you want or need". Eg. if you're sad, find someone who's going through a difficult time and do something for them to make them feel a little better. Even if it's just a kind word, hug or some people just feel lonely and need someone to talk to or listen to them. That's just one example. That's why it feels so good to help others. Giving of ourselves to others helps us feel better. There are limits of course but we decide what our limits are. Continue to be a light for others.

    Hope you feel better soon and remember This too shall pass. :-)
