Today I learned that filling in a PIP form was the most demoralising thing I've done in my life.
It's like this......you spent 25 plus years of your life bumbling, stumbling and bumping into physical hurdles. During those years you develop a way of getting around those hurdles, physically and emotionally. Somehow in the process, you magic all the negatives into positives. Hey presto, the next thing you know is that you've surrounded yourself in so many rainbow layers of positivity that you feel pretty good about life in general. Right ? Agreed ? Oh yeah! You're floating. Bobbing up and down rhythmically on a wave of emotional stability just like this buoy in the water. Sunshiny.
