It is what it is

Things aren’t going exactly, or even remotely, how I expected they would go as I got older. I am having to adapt more and more to my circumstances. This does not make me a happy camper.

I am trying to take things as they come, and learn to do what I can do and let the rest go. This is not easy for me, nor would I expect it to be easy for anyone else.

I have been thinking about it, and one of the things I am wondering is this: is there something I could have done earlier in my life to have avoided this? But that kind of thinking really does drive me crazy. It smacks a little of “blame the victim” to me. Don’t get me wrong, I do not consider myself a victim in any way. But it is annoying sometimes to think that others might think I could have avoided this if only I had done something differently – eaten better, taken more vitamins, exercised more…whatever… There is always somebody who is willing to share their theory of how this came to be, or how you can get rid of it by just eating this way or taking this supplement.

And in the end, none of that matters. It is what it is, and I have to deal with what is. Others can think what they will – I can’t really let it affect me.
