Life Sometimes Is Hard

"Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep."
Carl Sandburg

Sometimes life just –– well pardon the French –– sucks. There are no other words to describe it.

I hate watching those I love hurt. I hate watching those I care about struggle. Sometimes I wish I could make decisions for people, as I see the path they are choosing will be a painful one. I hate being so far away from my family when they need me, or when I need them. I hate that sometimes this beautiful world can seem so heartless and uncaring. I hate that people's dreams can be crushed with one single blow. I hate that no matter what I say or do, it will not make a difference. I hate hearing and seeing those I love cry.

I hurt when those I love hurt. I find it hard not knowing what to do or what to say. I want to fix things for others, but I can't and that is hard. All I can do is be there for them and let them know that I care.

So for those who may be struggling right now, please know that I am here –– always.
