The saying, between a rock and a hard place is usually used when you are stuck between two unfavourable choices. But have you ever been in a situation where there are actually no choices to pick from even the unfavourable one?
Have you been job searching for so long that you stopped sending your resume anymore and now you just exist? Or you lost your job and there are no signs of getting another one any time soon?
Bills are still waiting to be paid and the landlord is no longer as merciful as before. It’s an in-between place.
Have you waited for your lover to make up his/her mind about finally settling down and the worst happened? They actually decided to settle down with someone else instead. That feeling is unexplainable it throws you in to that in-between place.
Have you ever waited for something big or small for that matter with so much hope but it took so long that all your hopes died along the way and now you are just managing without it but your heart is not anywhere near contented?
More often than not, life throws curveballs that are unpredictable and at times very hard to handle. It may be something small that will take a day to get over or something very huge that will take you eternity to try and get over it. All in all it’s a hard place to be, an unsure place, an in-between place.
I wish I could say that the next curveball will be easy to handle but unfortunately as long as you are alive nothing is guaranteed.
To those in-between places, never let your hope die because there is always light somewhere maybe at the end of the tunnel or maybe just a day away.
Hope is waking up every day with a strong conviction that at some point in life all will be well and the sun shall shine again.
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness-Desmond Tutu.
