"Warm salt water and some TLC. He'll be good as new in a couple of days."
Was he talking about my guy or me? Or everyone. What couldn't heal with salt water and some TLC?
Salt water is the beach. A good cry. Some bath salts in the giant tub that never gets used.
And who ever gets enough TLC?
A kind word. A well timed hug or a kiss of reassurance. A note of encouragement, just because.
My skin is getting thick from the constant need to protect myself from the elements. The elements of time and the assault of life as a grown up. Harsh, unnecessary words and relentless professional pressure. The infinite questions of making the right choices and distributing every resource in exactly the right way.
Warm salt water and TLC.
I'll add it to the list.
p.s. and this guy is back to 110%. The Rx worked for him.
