The past two years have been a real test of my sanity and my resilience.
I’ve been knocked down over and over by some pretty big life circumstances, yet I am still here.
I’ve pretty much lost everything you can lose in life; love, money, father, health. After losing all of that stuff I kind of hit this bottom where I have been bobbing around ever since. All of those hits can really put you in a dark place, and if you don’t handle it with grace and patience you can self-destruct. The heating supplier has been a true friend as she has kept me working and given me some kind of purpose during this tough period I am going through. She could have fired me as I was really not doing well each day at work, but she let me work on heat pumps in the back room while I listened to music. This seemed to have helped me get through the days as I was just in a zone doing the HVAC work. I could only imagine what would have happened if I lost that job in this time period, I probably would have ended up on the streets drinking myself to death. I’ll keep doing the heating and cooling repair work and somehow make it through this tough time and come out stronger in the end. I just don’t want to become jaded from all of this, as it has done with so many other people. I will go now and do this duct cleaning job then go to the beach.
