What happens when you live more than half your life and realize that it wasn’t worth the effort, time, or money. You’ve been breathing, eating, drinking, cribbing, weeping, raging, fearing for nothing. Absolutely nothing. If you hadn’t done all the things you did, you would’ve still been in the same place, in the same condition, […]
Absolutely Nothing by Terveen Gill — Gobblers / Masticadores // Editores: Manuela Timofte / j re crivello
Oh, I can totally relate to the feeling. At least a couple of years ago, that was totally me. I’m feeling a lot better now, but the niggling doubt will never fully go away. Our life time is precious. Great story, Terveen.
Thanks for sharing this, Britta. For me, it’s a feeling that comes and goes. Let’s hope that we can always find the strength to overpower this. 🙂
Ain’t that the truth! 😁 Love this brilliant and crisp piece! Awesome!👍
Thank you so much, Aaysid. I’m glad that you find it to be true. For those bleh days and not so great moods. 🙂
Absolutely true, everything tou wrote makes perfect sense!
Thanks so much, Deepak. It’s a part of all of us whether we accept it or deny it. 🙂
Yes, a beautiful existential story and I think many people can relate to that. This is especially true to those who have not live an authentic life and who labor in the profession they don’t enjoy and who try to live their life by other people’s opinion. It is tough but making changes requires courage, patience, energy, and money…
A beautiful write, Terveen. I loved it. ☺️
Thank you so much, Jeff. 🙂
You’re most welcome, Terveen. Always. ☺️
I don’t remember granting you permission to tell my life story, Terveenista Gillistrada! Things said to you in private should remain that way! And I know it was you who pilfered my diary and I demand its return immediately or my lawyers will be in contact and trust me you do not want to tangle with Dewey, Cheatam & Howe!
I thought I sent that back to you weeks ago. I don’t want any trouble, Rhyan. You won’t have to say this again.
And your story isn’t as exclusive or different as you may think it is. There are many with diaries and filled pages bemoaning life and its twisted logistics. Count me in or count me out. It’s a vicious cycle. 🙂
Just remember that we have all gone through these bouts of doubt and feeling that it’s all worthless. But as we say in AA (I’m a recovering alcoholic), this, too, shall pass. Try to focus on what you have to be grateful for. I find that if I do that every morning–and it can be very small things, like the hummingbirds at my feeder–it can cause a real psychic shift in the way I think. From negative to positive! It’s almost neurological! As Hamlet/Shakespeare said, “Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
I completely agree with you. It’s really about finding joy and being grateful. And often the smallest things in life make us realize this. I’m glad that you have the strength and courage to find your own peace and positive direction. Yes, there is nothing good or bad, it’s merely all perspective. Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment. I wish you well. 🙂
I can relate to this…
Each person can in some way or the other. Thank you. 🙂
