"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places."
-- Ernest Hemingway
I think I'm caught between a rock and a hard place right now...a very resilient rock and an extremely hard place.
I will do what must be done because it must be done.
It won't be easy.
I won't enjoy it... as a matter of fact (if I'm going to be honest) joy escapes most of these days because there is simply too much for one person to do.
But I will do it
I wasn't asked if I wanted to or if I'd mind or if I was strong enough...
I was expected to.
Just because I can
and we do alright
doesn't mean I'm happy
or I like it
It just means I get up every day
and do what I have to do
because there are people
counting on me
to do it.
