If You Were Going Crazy?

Posted by happypizza on May 29, 2007


Someone once asked, “What would you do if you thought you were going crazy?”

The reply came, “I’d go out and find someone less fortunate to serve!” Life just seems to make a lot more sense when you’re helping someone who has more problems than you do. And it’s somehow reassuring to be the one helping another person up rather than being helped up yourself. For instance, when you pass a man sitting on the sidewalk who has no legs and you put a dollar in his cup and take a pencil, you walk away thinking, “My life’s not so bad after all!”

What would you do if you knew you were losing your mind?

 

One ship sails east and another west

While the selfsame breezes blow

‘Tis the set of the sail and not the gale

That bids them where to go.

As the winds of the air are the ways of fate

As we voyage along through life,

‘Tis the set of the soul that decides our goal

And not the storm and the strife

–By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

To survive that is, I couldn’t be concerned with girlfriends or physically being there for family, I had school and a job and myself to worry about. And it made sens and worked for a while, I was actually able to do that. It seems as though I never allowed to let myself find a balance between the 2. I don’t know, but its sure that I’m not myself, and the most fustrating part about it, is that I used to be
