“Sometimes I feel like I’m diagonally parked in a parallel universe.” — Unknown
We’ve all been there: feeling “off” or underappreciated or unloved. Maybe it’s feeling completely alone with a problem, or that you just don’t fit in. Perhaps you’re having trouble clearing away the fog and thinking productively. Whatever it may be, my advice is to try to understand what’s going on with you.
It’s like Socrates said about the unexamined life. But if you can’t put your finger on it, try not to worry. Tomorrow you’ll hit the re-set button and see if you do better, think more clearly, are kinder toward others. (What goes around…)
Some easy bits of healthy self-nurturing until then: Call a friend. Go for a long walk in nature. Play with your dog. Read a good book. Meditate or pray or hug a tree. Whatever soothes the soul. You’re not alone; it just feels like it right now.
