One Big Melodrama

These days I'm really taking stock and learning more and more about myself.

I have always thought of myself as a happy go lucky individual, someone who is always ready to have a good laugh but along the way I realize that, I'm not really who I thought I was.

Can I dare say that at my age, life has taken it's toll on me?

I can't say that I have gone through so much or been through hell and high water so to speak, but I realized that my life has been full of melodrama and not because it is as such but because I deem it to be.

Yes, I am the middle child and I have wanted far more than what I have been given, but I still have more than many others and I am very blessed to have my parents. No, they are not perfect but they have gone through so much length to try to prosper me.

Yes, I might not have everything I want but I know, I got more than my fair share, I think, especially thinking about other people who suffers from much worse that what I've been through.

My life is not easy, I can tell you that. but it hasn't been hard as well. It's normal. I live a very normal life with its share of ups and downs. While others suffer from loss, tragedy, and all those things you wouldn't dream, even on your enemy on a bad day (hahaha.. exag but you know what I mean) I suffer from the daily dose of life, financially sometimes we are able, sometime we need a little help. We have a beautiful place to live in, yea in spite it being small and in need of repair and improvement. I have beautiful children who have their own fits of being kids (naughtiness, hard headedness and the desire to get away with things when they know they've done wrong) but overall, I live a good life.

I realized this because, I was trying to write something funny, a light article so to speak, but I find myself hankering for words and going back through all my writings, I realized that I write of sorrows, sadness and well, just as my title goes, one big melodrama. I feel like my life is such a lonely, sad existence when in truth it's not.

So I'm going to leave all the melodrama behind and let joy shine through who's with me?

The world is as we are. If we are happy and content, in general we see the world as being that way.

so it's good to take a few minutes out of your day and learn about yourself.

I'm in - trouble is the world usually doesn't do me any favours. Still, that doesn't stop me from trying for an easy life.

I do agree with what you are saying. I think the same things.

Hello, great post! I know what you mean by a normal life but many ups and downs. It happens all we can do is do our best.

It is not how much you have but what you make of what you have is true happiness. I think you know it and you should stick to it.

I'm done with melodrama as well. I'm done with people who bring nothing but negativity in my life and yet still expect that they are entitled to something.

It sounds like you are tapping in to the secret of happiness, which is not getting what you want, but wanting what you've got.
