“How can I say it?
The way to “get over” a life is to die.”
from The Cure by Albert Huffstickler
I recently heard this poem and this line stuck out for me. “The way to get over a life is to die”. While that initially sounds incredibly depressing it is true. The only way we’re getting out of this existence is death. And please, before I go any further, if you are reading this and feeling suicidal please stop and call 1-800-273-8255 or go to https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.

Whether you are a mom feeling the pressure of every day or you are a man feeling pressure to provide for your family and everything else in between; we struggle daily to “do it all and do it with a smile”. While I’ve explained the pitfalls I’ve experienced with the do it all mentality before and how it’s just not possible, today I want to focus on the do it with a smile portion of this perfection disease we’re coping with.
