I could shop too much,
Or eat too much,
Or not eat enough,
Or smoke (although I don’t know how),
Or watch TV all day, (well I did today because of my cold),
Or play on-line games too much,
Or do anything too much,
To escape my feelings, or life, or whatever.
I know there will be days I feel good, and days not so good.
I know there will be days I might choose to watch a little more TV.
But when it becomes a pattern, a habit, or the ONLY way I cope with life,
I know I am in trouble.
I can’t run away from stress, anxiety, bad news, good news, sickness, life.
It’s a messy thing, this life.
But it’s my messy life!
