When you think you cannot tolerate the insecurity that is life, then what?

You think “I’m done, I’m done, I’m done” until you get up an try again.

You just got to keep getting up. Just keep moving. Life is like Mount Everest, you can’t sit down, you can’t waste time. Keep moving, buddy.

That was me the past few days! But I see I’ve become a robot and I go to work and do what I’m supposed to do. I smile at people and grocery shop as if everything’s fine, and after awhile the intense feelings/panic/despair soften and I live another day.

…out of the box of beliefs and my appraisals of the moment according thereto.

I don’t need a bunch of therapy to know that life can let me down and that I can overcome the bad effects - until one of them kills me.
