Been feeling a little bit persnickety lately.
A little bit peevish.
A little bit Charlie Brownish.
Charlie Brown gave us such immortal quotes as this: “Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong?’ Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”
“This is my depressed stance. When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better. If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.”
Like Charlie I can put myself down, lie awake worrying, and become depressed.
No one is very impressed with that behavior, but does that stop me?
Well, yeah it does, most days.
But at my Charlie Browniest, I want to enjoy the pity party.
And that is a pity, because I never do get around to enjoying it.
And although, I like Mr. Brown on the TV screen, I don’t want to be like him in real life.
So, sorry, Charlie!
We gotta part company!
Are you ever in a funk? How do you get yourself out of it?
