Yes, dewdrops they do...I once wrote a poem "There Will Be Sundhine Again" which basically says about the same thing though not those exact words. just that we should not wallow in self-pity when there are more important things to worry about.

Actually.... I think the "storm" is a time to think deeply. I'd not call it " self-pity" to be in duress when life is literally raining down! There is not always anything at all more important at that precise time.... " the storm... the upset.... the flood upon life" IS the importance. Why do people judge anyone for a " pity party"? Why is it not ok to not be ok!!!? Why does anyone have to sidestep what is going on in reality and seek " something better"? When just then there is no " better"... there is just being.

Storms don't stop in mid raindrop when the clouds are still blacker than black. Does a Lily look for something more important to do while her petals are being pounded off? Survival is all she can do. She can't blossom again till another season. Is that a pity party on behalf of the Lily? Or.... does it have to dwell upon what is within her core bulb and wait... nothing else to do.... until once again... she is capable of blossoming. Do the Roses assume the Lily is in a pity party because she doesn't put out more blossoms like the Rose? Does the Rose jab her with thorns? or just leave her to be the Lily she is. The storm does indeed pass... but nothing... nothing at all can put those very first petals back upon the stem. .... nothing is ever quite the same even with the next ones to unfurl.

yes Janice, you are so right...nothing is ever quite the same after the storm. Life just moves on and we move on with life...in the hope of something better,even if theres no better...but then just maybe!

We always hope for maybe even when we know it has passed and won't be coming back.

Janice,
Thank you for putting in terms of nature, something I can better understand. I don't lmow about in Canada, (or India, for that matter) but here in the U.S. we refer people to seek professional help if they are suffering from a "pity party" too long. Maybe we should just let them alone, until they get better on their own. Sorry if I offended anyone, I don't know how these things are dealt with in the rest of the world.

David... I grew up hearing * Get OOOOVER IT!*... thing is.... there are happenings in life that are so defining there is NO.... getting over... no " bettah" .... for deep seeded depression, yes, I believe professional help is in order.... but where I come from a pity party is deemed so by someone else when they have zero sympathy for the very real grief another goes through. Personally I despise the term. I'm used to it meaning being very selfish .... me, myself and I.... but not of the one condemned for their very honest emotional stat... but rather the one who is doing the assuming and judging is the only one I've ever seen it definitely true of! No offense taken.... we all have differing ways and terms we use.
