This is me. My husband hates it.”How can you say that?! It’s clearly not going to be OK.”

But it always somehow does work out. I love being right.
The funny thing is, when other people tell me that it’s all going to be ok, it pisses me off.

  1. You are singing my life with your words. Seriously. I wish I knew this word years ago!!

    Also, yes. When people say I’ll be fine with certainty I get flaming angry. Like YOU DONT KNOW WHAT I DO TO KEEP THIS SHIP AFLOAT. It’s like I’m angry because my opinion is based on all the facts and if they don’t have that I feel like they’re blowing smoke and that means they think I’m blowing smoke and we are in on some b.s. Lie but no because I do know it’s going to be okay.


  2. This is me! I used to get really *really* angry when people said it’s going to be fine or okay, because yeah, whadda YOU know!? But after a long time (a long long time) of being negative about life and the crap it throws at you, I finally came to realize your first sentiment, Jupiter – somehow it *always* works out. This too shall pass. The worst scenario is someone dies, so if that doesn’t happen, then, well, everything’s gonna be okay. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, as my dad used to say.

    What I do say is: ‘Yes, I know it’ll be okay, but for right now will you please just allow me a few minutes of sheer panic / frustration / madness? Thanks.’
