“Would you rather be hit by the red hammer…or the blue hammer?”
That’s the question my husband has to answer every day, if not multiple times a day. Things really never seem to go his way. Once in a blue moon they do. But it’s hard to focus on those times when 363 days a year, he’s hammered.
I don’t know that I’ve ever met anyone whose life is like this. I don’t know what it means but I sure wish I did.
I know peoplehave a bad run, a bad year, a bad five years in some cases. But these periods are limited and the ratio of bad to good is not so overwhelming as what I witness him face, day in and day out.
I have heard theories that essentially say, the closer you are to God, the harder your life is. I have also heard theories that say it’s a person’s bad karma that makes their life the way it is.
I don’t believe either of those theories, if they’re supposed to true for all. Do you?
He says he doesn’t know why his life is the way it is but he tries to warn people. He tells them what it’s going to be like, if they get anywhere near him. He warned me. He says people don’t believe him when he tells them about this but they find out fast enough, he’s telling them the truth.
I think about this a lot and I never come anywhere near anything the resembles an answer. He’s got a Mars Saturn aspect in his chart, but it just can’t be that simple.
When you see someone who’s life is relentlessly difficult, how do you explain it to yourself?
