Say something begins to happen now. I begin to note the symptoms in a few months.
Takes me 6-8 months , sometimes over a year to figure out that I may be depressed. Or angry.
Then 2-3 years, sometimes 6 to figure out why.
Most other things that I’m doing meanwhile, I’m pretty fast at. Fast girl.
Say that again, properly, slowly: I’m pretty fast at most other things I’m doing.
I didn’t used to be so slow. When I was 11 and then 12, I knew I was sad, I even found out I was depressed, and I knew I needed help.
I suppose I finally figured out why we live so long….. we get 50-80 years to amble along slowly, figuring out whatever we want to figure out.
I guess I would like to thank God for that.
Meanwhile there’s a really posh Slow Movement growing really fast in the world. But I want to be slower right now.
