it’s the hardest feeling in the world for me. i think it always has been, but i’ve never really been aware enough to recognize it. ironically enough, one of my dearest friends posted a blog post about gray areas today, too. reading her perspective on it really helped. she mentions this quote below:
I like to play the grey areas in life – that’s the most uncomfortable place to be. Nobody likes to be in that in-between state where they don’t know what’s going to happen. There’s a lot of tension in that, and a lot of stuff to play with – where it’s uncomfortable and awkward and sad and scary.
– Melanie Lynskey
i realize that this feeling of limbo can’t last forever. it just can’t. same with any other feelings or emotions or states of being. we can’t forever be happy, or upset, or mad, or frustrated. and that gives me hope. to know that with these feelings of uncertainty, these feelings of “limbo-ness”, these gray areas, come the happy moments, too, when we start to see things clearly and then further appreciate them.
more to come…
