Day 43

Updated: Apr 18

My mom called to check on me. She tried a few go-to things you say to someone who is in total despair.

When those didn’t work, she said,

“Well, it is never going to get better.

Your daughter’s always going to be dead, and you are always going to be upset about it.

You might as well get on with it [life].”

A pregnant pause passed, and then we both burst out laughing as she said, “How’s that for a pep talk? You are always going to feel bad so get on with it.”

I guess my mom uses some version of that speech to motivate herself or her subordinates to do their jobs? Who knows? She sees my current job as just trying to live.

What is the point of life, to love people and then lose them? That seems so cruel.
