Day 26: have you ever thought of giving up on life : when and why

Refer to my previous day post as I discuss one time and the other time was a few years ago now when I was dealing with the aftermath of being raped. I know I haven’t mentioned it in these posts at all because I have mostly not wanted to discuss it all that openly, so I have been trying to find other answers to the topics.

However it is relevant to this topic. It was a horrible year, i let a lot of people down, including myself. I wanted all the hate, shame, guilt, fear and nightmares to stop. What an easy way to make it stop.

Then I would look at my hubby or he would hug me or tell me he loved me and my resolve would strengthen and I would find the strength to go on one more day. Just one more day. It was my mantra for almost 12 months.

It worked.

    You didn’t let anyone down, darling. You concentrated on your survivial and THAT was a wonderful thing.

    You get that “letting people down” syndrome from me, I think. Sorry about that, it is a genetic trait.

    Life chucks crap at us and we have to survive: we do it the best we can at the time. That is what you did, the best you could at the time.

    Keep doing it!
