“耶誕節了…”

|

上週末我去朋友家赴聖誕晚宴。當然,屋子裏少不了有聖誕歌曲作為背景音樂。我聽到了那熟悉的歌詞:“耶誕節了,你做了些什麼?又走過一年,迎來新年的起點…”突然間我對自己感到很失望。

的確,這一年我都做了些什麼呢?

腦子突然被那些還沒做的事情塞得動彈不得:我的身體還沒有完全恢復,我沒有做運動,我的頭疼也還沒好,
電子書還沒寫完,還沒有更新Bearapy博客,還有那麼多篇的博客稿沒寫完…我沒有,我沒有,我沒有…我什麼都沒做!!!

我開始對自己念叨。
depression, recover from depression, how to get out of depression, suicide, international executive, expatriate life, self awareness, finding yourself, balanced life, overachiever and depression, burnt out cause depression, stress cause depression, prevent suicide

朋友問我怎麼了。我對她講了我的想法。她的眼睛都要瞪出來了,朝我挪近一步,一字一句地盯著我的臉說:“你說你什麼都沒做是什麼意思?你把婚結了!”

啊,糟糕。

於是我開始在腦子裏列下完成事項的清單:我照看自己的博客並為其他幾位朋友的博客寫了文章,我幾乎每天都打太極,我開始練習書法和做冥想,我有了幾只新的熊熊,我烘烤點心,下廚房做飯…

但今年我最重要的成就是:我還活著。

所以,對所有還在抑鬱、焦慮、狂躁及其它不管何種病症中掙扎的人們,向你們這些勇敢的鬥士們致敬!

這是最重要的。僅此而已。你還活著。你還在前進。

新年快樂。明天會更好的。
