So many people in my life seem to be going through rough patches at the moment; friends, acquaintances and some of my blogging buddies. It's kind of like there is some global shift, some misaligning of the stars, that is bringing chaos and stress and depression into the lives of these people I care about.
It's quite distressing to see people going through tough times, and I can certainly empathise. I've had my own rough patches in the past few months, although almost trivial compared to what some of these folk are going through. Actually, that's not entirely true. In hindsight some of my problems were kind of trivial, but they still felt tough and at times overwhelming when I was experiencing them. Perspective is a wonderful thing.
What is unusual is that it seems so pervasive at the moment. So many friends having tough times. I've spending a lot of my time thinking about them, sometimes unsure what to do or say that might help. Suffice to say that I'm thinking of you. May the way ahead be clear and the road free of obstacles.
