sifting through card around here, I read a comment about life will be okay. I incur a traumatic brain injury last summer, & people are happy with how I turned out from it. I'm not. And all these friends keep telling me that "it's gonna be okay" when they ask "how am I?" and I tell them "I feel shitty." I hate when they say it's gonna be okay bec I could kill myself in the process and that's not okay. I thought my friends can be useless Sometimes. Now I gather from these comments, that it's what my friends say because it's probably what they say to themselves when they're facing their own hardship. positive friends: things will be okay, you're awesome! negative me: (thinking) no, they're no, bec life will eventually roll down hill again .
