A thing I worry about a lot is this: feeling shitty about things that are, in the grand scheme of The Universe, not that shitty.
Like, I know what a bad day is now. Those Bad Fucking Days only come every now and then. If you're lucky, you never get one. Or maybe you only get a couple in your lifetime.
The problem is, once you know what a Bad Fucking Day is like, everything else is mild in comparison. Wreck your car? No sweat, comparatively. Hurt yourself? You'll heal. Burn dinner? Order pizza. Get two rejections in one day for a project you love? Perspective.
And yet, here and there, I still want to get mopey about little things. Not all the time, but sometimes. Sometimes, I just feel kind of shitty and I want to complain about feeling kind of shitty, but then I think, no way is this a Bad Fucking Day. No way is this even on the continuum of things worth being upset over.
So, I guess my question is: is there some way to give yourself permission to be whiny about mundane things?
Maybe I just need permission to feel a little blue every now and then. I'd like to take some deep sighs and not feel guilty.
See? Now I feel guilty.
