Traumas, adaptivity and aggravation

It’s been a bugger of a day, with two significant people in my life receiving bad news and there not being anything I can do to make things better, or do much to comfort them beyond offering hugs, time and keeping most of the trite platitudes at bay. Some might say that’s pretty much the best thing under the circumstances, and at least I didn’t go straight to the jokes and cynical sarcasm.

I also got into a debate with someone about the impact of traumatic  environments on children as compared to the impact of specific traumatic events. When I get into Facebook debates, I go for the deep ones.

Pausing then for a quick mental check, I’m okay – merely frustrated in my ability to do the impossible. I obviously need to up my awesome rating somehow. For now, let’s just Look On The Bright Side of Life
