The Good Thing Blues

leave a comment »

I have a somewhat ridiculous fear of good things. Every time something seemingly good happens or could happen, I’m convinced that something bad is waiting around the corner. This means that anytime something good happens or could happen, I start to get anxious. Anytime there’s anything to be excited about, I start to brace myself for the worst. I need to start breathing into a paper bag and popping a Xanax.  Do you see why this is a particularly annoying fear?

And if I tell you it’s because so many good things have gone sour, you’ll just say that I have the wrong attitude. But, I don’t know what to do about that. Other than hope, hope, hope.
