I'm going through some el crapo times right now. If you've clicked on this title because it means something to you, then chances are your life sucks too. I AM NOT TRYING TO SUGGEST WE SHOULDN'T ALL APPRECIATE OUR LIVES AND COUNT OUR BLESSINGS. WE SHOULD. But when your life sucks, you want to talk to some other people who are suffering too, to know you're not alone amongst happy facebook photos. I suggest a swap. Let's talk to each other.
This will be a simple card and short or long letter swap, but I want you to sign up for this thinking about being ready to respond to the person who wrote to you. We need all the support we can get. So if you get a card from your partner, please send them something back. Of course I can't make this mandatory.
If you feel like it, you can send a little gift as an extra. Of course, if your life feels as yucky as mine does now, you may not have the energy. Let's just see how we feel. I am not setting any limits at all on this swap, because if someone flakes on you, it is probably only because their life took a turn for the worse. I will angel this.
Let's be the support for each other. Be ready to provide some specifics of your troubles...no one wants to write a heartfelt letter detailing their problems, only to have someone say "I'm having issues with my son." Also, if you're a person who becomes upset by hearing people whine in a letter, maybe several letters, then this swap is probably not for you. Having to pretend to the outside world that everything is fine when it's not is hard--this is a place to be real. And if you could use some prayer right now, I've got another swap for that one, too.
