Way #43: Forgive that Depressing Depression to Find a Way toward Gluten-Free Simplicity
I have been doing really well with my gluten abstinence for the past couple of months. I have fought off several relapse temptations and some really cool and effective pro-activity has kept my belly pretty happy at the same time.
So….. why then am I soooooo depressed today?
Logically speaking: There have been a couple of things in my space for just the past few days that have been somewhat intimidating, ruthless and unforgiving of me for who I am.
Emotionally speaking:I whine because I figured that if I were Gluten-Free… like totally G-F>>>> then I would not have such troubles.
OK … So… wake up. Yes… being G-F is really super good for me. AND… there are likely to be occasional moments of depression, particularly when faced with certain super negative energies…. Sooooo I guess… I can make the Gluten go away…. But I cannot always make certain other things go away. Bummer?
Meanwhile… I can try to forgive my moments of depression for now. And I can dig my toe into the ground in order to push off and move on down the road again. And best of all… I can do so with the confidence that builds each time I go through such junkyards and still avoid a pity party which can lead to a Gluten-Relapse-Fest….
I forgive myself for feeling depressed this time.
