|It's been a while since I posted. I haven't been doing too well mood-wise. I am missing a lot of the furbabies I have loved and lost. I have done a couple of entries on them in various book items.
At one point dennis23468 asked me if it was worth it. He has also made posts questioning if connections with anyone or anything are worth it.
Here is my considered response.
Yes, it may hurt at times but it is definitely worth it. Without connections with other people, you spend far too much time conversing with yourself and no one else. The thing is that hope is contagious, laughter is contagious, and optimism is contagious. If you pull away from everyone you aren't exposed to these things. All you can really catch when you converse exclusively with yourself is a bad case of rot and mildew of the soul. I find that alone a person ends up seeing the darkness. It takes exposure to others to catch a glimmer of the light. It is easy to be the light for someone else, but so much more difficult to light up your own life. The song says, "YOU light up my life." not I light up my life.
I have written and posted about the pain I feel about the past looking for just a little of that light from others, and I have received plenty. Now I am attempting to return the favor and offer dennis23468 a glimpse of my light. I wouldn't have even pulled out of the depression as much as I have if his darkness hadn't begged for a little light. Even in pessimism he sparked a little light in my life, just by responding.
Yes, dennis23468 it is worth it.
