“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind,
some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I’ve brought a big bat, I’m all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me.”
~ Dr. Seuss
It’s a hard feeling to accept that you must fight your troubles on your own. Now this may not be 100% true, but it may certainly be how you feel. That your closest allies should be your biggest supporters, fighting the front lines right along with you, but they’re not.
Maybe it’s because your troubles are too troublesome for them. It may just be too hard on them to handle or understand what you are going through. Or maybe they have troubles of their own, and they simply don’t have time for yours. Regardless, it’s a hard lonely fight to fight.
It takes some tears and more than a few sleepless nights to find yourself ready to fight by yourself, but sometimes that’s just how it is. So I’ll get my bat ready, and I may fall quite a few times. All I can do is keep trying my best and hope that I am not standing there by myself.
