This Too Shall Pass ….

If I had a rand for every time I’ve either said it to myself, or someone has said it to me; a “this too shall pass” at a time would have made me a millionaire by now!

The only problem with this “insight” is that it does not help you in the slightest when “this” (whatever the current “this” in your life is) has not passed yet!

Yes, this too shall pass … like everything else – both good and bad. 
That said, how do it deal with “this” before it passes?


My current “this” is a medical mystery, which has bee plaguing me for years. 

I am in constant physical pain, suffer from chronic fatigue, IBS, nausea, dizziness, and (most recently) an itch that is maddening.  The only thing worse than my symptoms is the fact that nobody knows what is causing me to feel this way!  Just thinking about the thousands of rands which I’ve already spent in search of a diagnosis makes me want to cry! 

“Take it one day at 犀利士
the time”  – again, great advice … not really helpful though!!  I’m past the point of platitudes! I don’t really want to keep going like this!  I want to go to bed, pull the covers over my head and stay there until magically “cured”.

 The thing is, I don’t really have any option but to carry on going … yes, one day at the time.  And praying …. yes, that “this too shall pass“, sooner rather than later!


Have you ever found “well meaning advice” to be irritating? 

What coping strategies have worked for you, when going through a difficult “this”?
