Without getting into too much detail, I can relate and empathize with your situation. The last few weeks have been tough for me.

My life changed forever. It will never be the same. Change is either good or bad, and it is up to me to choose to make it better. Like you, I gained perspective. I don't see the point in worrying/dramatizing every single minute problem in my life anymore, but in the same vein, I am learning to appreciate all of the subtle beauties in our world and in my life.

For the past week, I've been driving to work thinking, and sometimes even saying, "This is going to be a good day. This is going to be a good day." Sometimes it works; sometimes it backfires and makes things worse. Somewhere along the line, it has started working more often than not.

Hang in there, PF. I'm not going to pretend that what you're going through is going to be easy. It won't. But it will get better. Not tomorrow or even a week from now. Maybe not even a month from now. But it will.
