Anyone got some whuffles to spare? I know I don't post here that often, but I need some positive energy.[More:]I have not one, not two, but three Very Big Bad Things going on in my life right now that could destroy me financially. I have been scraping by since my divorce two years ago, and things were looking more hopeful, but because of the Three Very Big Bad Things, all my hard work might amount to nothing. I have very little control over the Bad Things, so I am feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Anyone got anything hopeful to say?
Come on in...

Nothing generically hopeful to say, but always a listening ear...

I always find comfort in the saying "everything passes". Sometimes it seems like it won't pass... but it does. Or at least they do begin to get better.

Hope things turn around sooner rather than later for you.

I'm so sorry you're going through rough times, Twiggy. I hope better days are ahead.

I'm not in the exact same situation as you, but I have found solace in the idea that This Too Shall Pass when I get upset about my situation. It's something to meditate on at the very least.

Bad things happen and good things happen. You are now due for some good things, so expect them soon!

Your hard work will pay off, even if it doesn't seem so now.
You're a stronger person already for getting through the divorce, and those coping skills will guide you through these Bad Things whatever they are. Keep at it, you're probably doing better than you think.

Chin up!

are you familiar with Modest Needs? Maybe they can help you with the financial troubles.
*hug* good luck

On the bright side, at least you're not married any more.

I'm not good at this, am I?

About this time 3 years ago, I had 3 very big things befall me. It was hell.

If you're going through hell, keep going. óWinston Churchill

Whuffles to you. Sweet, sweet whuffles.

And yah--it will pass. My freaking mantra. It works.

I wish I'd had my camera when my cat was attempting to swat Doohickie's 'RAWR' GIF up there - that would provide temporary cheer for anyone. Failing that, I hope things get better for you soon ***Twiggy***

Since I'm coughing and have a bit of a fever I'll not give you whuffles. I don't know what the exact mechanics are of whuffles but there might be a risk of contagion.
I know how you feel; I've had some Big Bad Things recently.
At moments like that I try to remind myself of an interview I saw quite a while ago with a nonagentarian. She had lived through the WWI, the depression, WWII with its hunger winter (here in NL at least), through the nuclear threat of the cold war. How did she cope? they asked. She said that you live through those things one day at a time. The way she spoke about it exuded a common sense faith that through these vicissitudes you'll be alright in the end.
Best wishes twijgje.

Thanks so much for all the hugs, whuffles, cute pics, and moral support. Tomorrow is a big day for one of the Very Big Bad Things to either get resolved or totally fall apart, so the good vibes are much needed right now.
