You Know That Feeling….?

You know that feeling when you’re just waiting, waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let everything out that you kept in all day, that feeling of both relief and desperation? Nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either, and you’re tired, tired of everything, tired of nothing, and you just want someone to be there and tell you it’s okay, but no one’s going to be there, and you know you have to be strong for yourself, because no one can fix you. But you’re tired of waiting, tired of having to be the one to fix yourself and everyone else, tired of being strong, and for once, you just want it to be easy, to be simple, to be helped, to be saved, but you know you won’t be, but you’re still hoping and you’re still wishing and you’re still staying strong and fighting with tears in your eyes. You’re fighting.

Don’t give up. Your heart is a weapon the size of a fist. Keep loving. Keep fighting.


  1. Gus,You always touch my heart! And find songs to go with what you are saying,Just Wonderful!

    • Thank you Doreen. That’s the purpose! To touch people, to help, to inspire them, to let them know there’s always a light at the end of every tunnel. I hope you join the member area. 🙂

  2. Gus how do you know so much how others feel? You seem to have such compassion about how others feel. It means so much to others! It means so much to ME. I think it is up to us to save ourselves; however it is hard sometimes to see the forest for the trees. Life can be so overwhelming in all of it’s complexities and issues. This is well written…I love the analogy of the heart being a weapon the size of a fist – to fight on. It is true what you say. Thanks for the encouragement you give to others, and God Bless you!

    • How? You know how Jacki. I’ve “been there”. More importantly, I’ve been Blessed enough to sense it in others. We’re in it together! 🙂

  3. PS I really love this music, you are so good at finding just the right song! Thanks again!

  4. Wow today,last several days truly so comely over the top My daughter passed on 3/17/2000. She had been terrible sick for ten years,I was the one that cared for her and tended too all needs and took care of her son who is autistic.He is my entire life. Than I lost my job 8 months ago my son is sick. I am wearing down. All the articles you write about is inspiringand up lifting. God is great,I would not have made it this far. God Bless you and your work.

    • You’re carrying a heavy burden. Trust me, you’re one of millions, there’s a purpose and meaning behind all of this. It may not seem so at the moment, but God is preparing you for something beautiful. Keep your faith. 🙂
