The Pendulum... (Connie J...)
When you're in the midst of a horrific situation - be it Domestic Violence, dealing with a sexual assault, or some other kind of trauma - it often feels like your "pendulum" of dealing with it swings from one side, to the other, repeatedly.
Just when you think you're level, and can truly move forward, that darn pendulum just swings away.
Some time before my Mother passed, my pendulum swing was from about the 5 to the 7, as on the face of a clock. The bulk of the last 3 months, at times it has swung from the 1 to the 11; and has even gotten stuck on random numbers, in between.
When this happens, all you can do is keep focused on your healing - be it journaling, talking to a Counselor or trusted Friend. Do WHATEVER it takes to battle that Depression that is always on the fringes of your "Life Clock".
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
