Push Ahead

It happens to the best of us. We have a bad day.     We feel trapped…like we’re struggling and no one knows (or cares) about our pain.

Just push ahead.

We all have our hard-luck stories:

Abusive relationships. Childhood trauma. Lost jobs (and wages).


Just push ahead. It’ll get better. No, I can’t say when, just that it will.

I saw a movie years ago where a guy paid another guy to “off him.” (He was ultimately depressed.) It was a comedy (because nothing spells comedy like a good, old-fashioned suicide). Anyway, the potential killer says (I’m paraphrasing): “Listen, I got no problem with doin’ the job, but what if, on the day after I kill ya’ comes all the answers to your problems?”

I guess I’m thinking of the awful things that possessed people to commit suicide over these past few weeks: the gay college student who jumped off the bridge; the father who killed his family and himself over financial concerns…and so many others.

If only they’d held on just a little while longer.

So these are my words of wisdom this “go ’round”: Just push.

…better days are just ahead.
