I read an amazing quote today which I loved and felt the need to share with everyone. It goes something like this.

“When a trout rising to a fly gets hoooked on a line and finds himself unable to swim about freeely, he begins with a fight which results in struggles and splashes and sometimes an escape. Often, of course, the situation is too tough for him. In the same way the human being struggles with his environment and with the hooks that catch him. Sometimes he masters his difficulties; sometimes they are too much for him. His struggles are all that the world sees and it naturally misunderstands them. It is hard for a free fish to understand what is happening to a hooked one.” –¬†Karl Menninger.

Now I have no idea who Karl Menninger is, what he does or if he is still alive! But he really has hit the nail on the head with that quote. I read it and immediately could relate to what he is saying. You often look at the people you love, they are struggling massively with something and you yourself just don’t see what the fuss is about. The free fish will look at the hooked one and think “That is easy, I could get out of that predicament with no issues” but could it really? Likewise when I am in a predicament and people look at me thinking “what is the fuss…just do this”, no sir it just doesn’t work. My heart and brain function in a certain way and I struggle to deal with certain issues. I wish I could, but I’m no Superman. On a pretty depressing Monday morning, I feel like I’m on a hook, I hope I can wriggle free and move on but right now I’m struggling. I hope everyone who is stuck on a hook like myself, can wriggle free, put to bed any issue they have and be happy. On that depressing note, this is Arainmunda signing out.
