There are always difficult times in everyones’ lives – it’s impossible to get through an entire year without a tragic occurence, or just unfortunate mishap. This is when we look to our friends, partners, lovers for the support we need. It’s not always easy to co-ordinate thought and deed when you’re consumed with angst. Usually of course this is made up 90% selft pity and 10% being genuinely hard done by. The way to rid yourself of the self pity part is to just look in the mirror – what do you see? When this irritating state of affairs affects me – rather more often than I like to admit to, I do indeed look long and hard in that mirror. I tell myself that I look damned good – nay fantastic for my age and my hair doesn’t look too horrendous either. Amazing how a little self belief can really bring a change in all ways.
