I pose the question, what do you do when a person you thought was strong, becomes almost like an infant? You know that strong person is still inside somewhere but they have given up on themselves. You tried tenderness, love, patience and compassion, yet instead of thriving they reversed. Now you are left with anger, hurt, and frustration. I understand we all go through rough times, depression is no joke. It is very hard to sit idly by and watch them become the one think they taught you not to be. Or maybe it was my sister, I should give credit to on that. Either way, it is mind boggling, and painful to watch. How can you convince this person to help themselves? How can you tell them you have had your fill? I know we are supposed to be caring, loving, and kind. It is just confusing when they keep putting you down, trying to make you feel less of a person, or that you just don't matter. I fight as hard as I can, because I know I am somebody, I have valid feelings, and I do have a strong mind. Making me the root of all their problems, is both sad and painful. I am venting a bit. I just pray that this too shall pass and a bright and better day is on the horizon. Above all I have hope!!
I want anyone who reads this to know, that you are loved, and appreciated. I want you to know you are beautiful or handsome, and that you are strong!! No matter what is thrown your way, remember, one day this too shall pass.
