I want a happy month of August. I know it sound selfish, being that we’re in the middle of a pandemic and all. But let’s consider some things here:
In August, 2018 I went through a very dark depressive episode. Thankfully it didn’t last more than a couple of weeks, but it left its dent in my psyche. And changed some of my behaviors for a while.
In August, 2019 I lost a dear friend to cancer. The anniversary of the day he died is coming very soon, and I almost don’t even WANT to reflect on it. Again, I don’t want to sound selfish, but I don’t want to go into any dark places this August!
That is all…I miss my friend, but I don’t want to go into a dark place thinking about how much I miss him.
