Day 3337: Overwhelmed

I am sometimes overwhelmed by

  • the news,
  • work,
  • responsibilities,
  • other people’s pain,
  • people’s responses to me on social media,
  • worry,
  • hope, and
  • the human capability for cruelty and kindness.

Here are some quotes about feeling overwhelmed:


I hope I didn’t overwhelm you with all those quotes or with my other images for today.

This shows the difference between the humility-arrogance scale and the insecurity-confidence scale, which an overwhelming number of people confuse. Confidence is not the same as arrogance, people!

I am momentarily overwhelmed by the coincidence that the Daily Bitch is doing her lashes on National Lash Day.

I am not overwhelmed by Joan interrupting me while I’m trying to blog.

I am overwhelmed by how cute and talented she is.

Finally, one more quote about feeling overwhelmed.

If you’re waiting for more information to drop about “waiting for the other shoe to drop,” here it is:

I know I wrote about waiting for the other shoe to drop before, here at the Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally. I’m not going to wait to drop the sole important point of one of those posts, as follows:

Waiting for the other shoe to drop is another form of fortune-telling and catastrophizing, human cognitive distortions we all do. When I realize that I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, I ask myself, “What am I so afraid of? It’s just a SHOE.”

If you are waiting for my other images of the day to drop, here they are:


I’m sick of waiting for my 2019 tax refund to drop, so I’ll be waiting on hold today for the other shoe to drop about that.

Here’s Roger Bartlett with “Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop.”

While I’m waiting for your comments to drop, I’ll drop some more gratitude on you.
