I think I might be having a midlife crisis. I’ve always been terrified of death; now I’m just straight up afraid to get old. I think part of me just wants to not be so responsible anymore. Being a “grown up” sucks. If I could rewind myself 10, 15 years…I probably would. I’d want to take da hubz with me, of course. I wish I’d met him way, way sooner in my life than I did.
There’s part of me that will always romanticize the younger days. No matter how fucked up it got. No matter who was controlling me, abusing me…at least I was young and I could get drunk nearly every night without consequence (or hangovers). Everything revolved around going to concerts and going to bars/clubs. I’ve always been a worrier, but I did a couple of somewhat carefree years.
Now I’m worrying about debt, health, and the future. I can’t survive without xanax and antacid. I just want to dance and sing and drink and not be such a stress case. But no, I’m just getting overly think-y again. I’ve been trapped in my head, moreso than usual, for the past few weeks, and I absolutely hate it.
I wish I was part of something. I wish I could be part of something, without feeling like an idiot because I’m too old for this shit. I thought I had finally reached my stride in my 30s, but now it’s becoming clear that I’m more insecure and unsure than ever.
As fucked up as always.
