There’s a fairly dark mood on the ward at the moment. I won’t go into details but suffice to say I have been on the receiving end of some rather aggressive anger issues.
I’m doing fine, luckily. Years of psychotherapy and a general education in life’s ups and downs have taught me to hold my nerve in times of uncertainty, and to say a prayer and go with the flow.
Defending our peace, and our self-esteem is sometimes a difficult thing to do and we are very blessed if we escape unharmed when aggressors attack. We should respect that the feelings of others are part of the divine plan, even when they are aggressive, and we should pray for mercy for our enemies as well as our friends.
I just want to say thank you to the divine being for not making me suffer more. I realise that I am very blessed, as we all are blessed not to suffer more. I may or may not have had my fair share of suffering in this life time, but whatever happens, things could always be so much worse.
If you feel like saying a prayer for my swift discharge from psychiatric hospital I would really appreciate it.
