In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Grateful and Guilty.”
Ahh, food comes to mind first. But not for me. For me grateful and guilty says I can spend time on my own, all alone.
Oh and am I grateful for that. Those minutes, hopefully hours, that I can spend with only my own company. No answers, no witty conversation, no clever comments. The only voices I hear are those in my head, now dont worry, I know who those voices belong to. Myself, my mom, my daughter, my best friend, my other friend, my friend who is going through a difficult time, my family member who never returned my call last week, my colleugue for work.
Should I really feel guilty about that? Nah, I should not, I should only feel gratitude, and I do. And the significant people in my life should too. As this is the time that I reload my energy, when I make myself strong again, so I can go out and be what they need me to be.
Grateful? Always. Guilty? Never !
