True power

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you, that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.
Warren Buffett


depression-a poem

it seaps into your core
into your soul
you cant breathe
you cant do anything
but be engulfed by the blackness
the blackness that is depression
it tears you apart
rips into every fibre of your being
tells you your worthless
a nothing and nobody
and you believe it
even though other people tell you otherwise
you find it hard to hear their words
and believe them
depression takes everything
everything you know
and turns your life
upside down and inside out
until you cant take it
life seems unbearable
and so you wonder
how will I cope?
how will I get through this?
What will make it better?


#SoCs sept 29th

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is dom. Use it as a word, or find a word that starts or ends with it. Have fun!
The first word that popped into my head was…domesticated!
Me, I am not at all domesticated, although, I have learned to do some things over time. Living on my own has taught me a lot!

I have learned that if you leave the dishes, they dont get done! If you dont pick up after yourself, you live in a pigsty!

And I do not like living in a messy house! So I have learned to clean up after myself. 😀

Growing up, my mom and dad didnt teach me a lot of domestic skills. I guess they taught I didnt need to learn them! But I think I did!

In the bording school I went to, we had to do a lot of chores, so that is where I learned most things. I learned to wash dishes, dry dishes, lay a table, sweep floors, etc. I had to, I didnt have any choice in the matter…we had to do them and that was that.

At home I never had to lift a finger. Not until I moved out to live on my own did I have to clean, and then, I grew up fast let me tell ya!

Now though I am glad I can clean, I am glad I can do for myself, yes I do have help, my PA helps me out now, but if I had to do it on my own, I would be able to do most things.
