I haven't blogged much lately because of various reasons, not the least of which is that I'm having a very difficult, life changing crisis right now. It's not something I'm comfortable sharing with the world in detail, but suffice it to say that the way I see the world has been altered permanently and drastically.
When these kinds of events occur in your life, you try to remove yourself from the situation and try to look at it objectively, which is of course nearly impossible. You tell yourself things will work out, that time will make things easier, etc., but you can never be sure.
There is in fact one more way to view a difficult situation, and that is quite simply to realize that things are difficult, you aren't equipped to deal with it, you can't control it. That's not fun, but a little hope and faith make things a little easier. There's always something to look forward to, and at times that helps. You have to keep your cup half full.
