I started to write on one topic when another surfaced - hiding! Physically hiding can be not answering the phone, emails and texts or leaving the house.
Emotionally hiding is not acknowledging an issue or sharing with a close friend or family member the reality of what's going on. It would be so easy to hide under the bed and avoid facing an issue that has the power to impact your life.
As I face yet another life lesson, it is always clear that acceptance is most important. There are never answers to "why" - Y is just a letter in the alphabet.
There may not be an answer to Y but there is always an answer to how to cope with life on life's terms. Pull out your tool box and pick up a tool. Journaling is always my first choice. What tools do you have in your tool box?
