It's getting stuck in traffic on a Friday when there's never any traffic on Friday.
It's forgetting your lunch on the kitchen counter, and not having any cash with you to get something else.
It's dealing with your depression and anxiety, and feeling like you're just in a rut with everything.
It's hearing that someone you care about has been diagnosed with a terrible disease.
It's wanting so much more from your life, but not understanding how to get there.
It's that fight you had with your friend/sibling/co-worker/partner that just was not even worth the arguing.
It's having lost something so very precious to you - a person, an object, a life, a job, WHATEVER.
It's knowing the holiday season is just around the corner and trying to muster up the strength to just get through it in one piece.
It's getting your paycheque and knowing that it's just not enough for your family to keep surviving on.
It's like feeling as if today would have been better without you in it.
