baffled by myself

“I’m bored with my life,” I said to my therapist a few weeks back. “Nothing exciting is happening.”

“Are you bored,” she asked, “Or just unhappy?”

The possibility hadn’t even crossed my mind.

(I was unhappy.)

Today, I feel depressed. Or perhaps I’m just tired. I can’t tell. (Yet?)

If I were God, I would install mood indicators on everyone’s inner left wrists. There would be no guessing about our feelings but, instead, a handy explanation we could consult as easily as checking the time.

I hate that sometimes (often) I don’t know how to tell.
