Kimmy Building and Tearing down The Wall

pink floyd the wall Pictures, Images and Photos

I think sometimes, we revert to our little girl selves when pushed into a corner.

I felt 14 years old for the past 24 hours, helpless, and depressed.  Of course, I didn't fade away. I didn't drown my sorrows.  I had work, and chores to keep me busy.

I didn't want to relive my pain by blogging it.  I didn't want to slice open my wrists with self harm.  I just sat.. in a sadness.

And then.. I remembered a coping skill of MUSIC.

When I was a young teen in the mid to late 80s. I decided that it was okay to be down. And music was my safe haven.

Pink Floyd The Wall, ALBUM was my escape.

And look what I found on YouTube...Part one

Kinda makes me want to pull out the Vinyl.

Pink Floyd's The Wall is on my level, allows me to feel.. then allows me to tear it down.

It sounds funny for a thirty-nine year old to babble on about depression, and tearing down the wall.. I think it's about coping skills that work.

Sharing light with Kimmy. Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.

  1. Kimmy, it does not sound funny to me at all, we should always babble at any age. Keeping it in makes it even worse. I feel your pain, I go there some days too. The unemployment, the isolation, well, the tears, they just fall, and the pain fills my chest and I come close to that edge. But my family keeps me going and sometimes I get glimmers of hope with a call about a job and I have started working with an employment agency. Music saves me too, when I put it on and walk on my treadmill, I'm able to escape for a while. Life ebbs and flows, and at least we have the coping skills to ride it out! Thanks for sharing and letting me and others know we are not alone,
    Love ya,
    Janet :)
