I’ve learned to find pleasure in the smallest little things most other people wouldn’t even notice, and it helps some.
It’s hard when they’re symptomatic though. I’ve had lots of days where just waking up was a depressing thought knowing I’d have to watch him be actively psychotic for another day.
I’m not religious, but I pass by a church most days that has an inspirational quote outside.
Today it was - worry will not relieve the sorrow of tomorrow, but it will sap the strength of today.
I have a problem of worrying too much and not enjoying the good moments, so today, I’m pondering that statement.
I also worry that if I don’t worry, I’ll go too far to the other extreme and not be prepared when something happens.
And, I have a superstitious kind of thing that if I have a moment where I’m truly happy, I’ll have a future moment where I’ll pay for it multiple times over in something really bad happening.
I’m thinking about how I can have some balance in my own emotions.
