Hello, everyone! I know it’s been a while since I wrote anything on here. Needless to say, 2016 has been pretty rough for me and I don’t think it’s letting up even as the year slowly comes to a close. Here’s a bit of writing to compensate a little bit for it. (Won’t even develop a proper plot since I’m at work. ^^;;)
Here’s the Reddit link for my writing prompt for today!
“Just give in,” she said. “Things aren’t getting any better, so why even hope for it.”
She was very insistent, as she always had been. For the longest time I was able to ignore her, overlook her snarky remarks or eye-rolls of disapproval as I tried to trudge my way through work- and in life in general. I doubt she’s ever realize how much work, how much time and effort I put into it. But I guess she doesn’t see that. All she sees is whatever trouble I end up getting myself into. It sickens me.
But he says otherwise. “You can do it,” he likes to tell me. “You can do many things. What you can do now, there’s more to it.” He is supportive. He likes to encourage. Sometimes he says it so often that I believe it; and for a moment, I believe in myself. I don’t tell him about how I’m doing, how I’m feeling, what I want to do next… but he knows. He’s just there, quietly waiting and watching.
They always have conversations with me. Nobody really ever sees them except me, and I know they’re there.
