when your feeling down

So, this has helped me in the past and I realized that It will occur tonight. I will be going to a friends house till late, after midnight. on my way home I will pass thru less than stellar areas. I have found in my life that driving through these places and looking, actually seeing the people who are on the street at 12, 1 or 2 am can be a real eye opener. a real, ' well maybe my life isn't so bad" moment. I know a lot of these people have had bad luck, made bad choices or are just trying to get by. ( they all cant be walking home from the second shift at the house of pancakes). that being said, ive had more than a few " there but for the grace of god " moments. I have a family who cares and would never let me be homeless nor hungry, I have friends who care. I have a job that lets me pay my bills and have some fun. I can afford good hygiene, all the accoutrements of having herpes: tea tree oil, peroxide, antivirals, etc. im not an addict ( except to the ladies on h opp) I can sleep in a bed tonight with heat or air conditioning as needed. I have a cupboard full of food (some even healthy!) . a 12 pack of blue moon in the fridge for sunday ( not the whole thing, jesh). etc.


seeing other people who, for whatever reasons are in a very bad place, who could be me if a few things didn't go my way can be helpful in putting a few blisters and back discomfort and gasp, having to hold off on sex a month a year into perspective.
