Cheesy Song of the Day, October 15:
‘The Difference’ The Wallflowers
The pressure lifted from my heart. I could feel it lifting. I was in the middle of making a collage (what, doesn’t everyone do a collage to work out the angst & anxiety?) and as an epiphany hit me visually, my heart opened up. It wasn’t heavy with disappointment and regret. It wasn’t the fluttering of butterflies that happens when you see a crush, but had the same effect: lightness, joy, contentment.
A good moment! Maybe I can make it happen more often?
I select the song because my emotions are too close for comfort. Anxiety, insecurity, doubt, worry, fear, more anxiety are all at the surface and I want to shake them off. For good. But that’s not life, right? In my rational mind, I know that my feelings aren’t facts, just temporary phases. But in my emotional vulnerable needy mind, I just want a security blanket.
