I’ve persisted today, even when I felt like giving up.
Sitting with a client suffering from depression two years after a bereavement – who just ‘gets rid of’ her days – makes me appreciate the joy I have in my life. I wanted to escape the chill of her room and the critical sharpness of her gaze. But I stayed.
Just as I have stayed with WordPress (now on my Blackberry) in spite of its technical problems, so I can commit to my postaday.
I feel that if I let it slip just one day, it would give me an excuse to slip others.
And if I abandoned that woman, what other pain would I attempt to escape from?
