Going down had been so easy. One step after the other, down, down, down into the depths of despair. So easy, she hadn’t really noticed until she hit rock bottom.
Her life was like a mud pool, her dreams slipping out of her reach, so why bother when she could stay awhile and let everything wash over her.
She lay there, thinking, reflecting, realising there should be more to her life than what was on offer. She was cold now, and then angry.
Time to reverse the trend of acceptance of put downs resulting in low self esteem.
She stood, braced her shoulders for the long climb out of the hole she had almost allowed to bury her.
One step at a time.
Shaky at first, but slowly then surely, up, up until the top was within her grasp.
One last push and she would be free.
She could do this.
