My phone battery died last night and I didn’t recharge it. Usually I will never let it die completely because I don’t like to be without it. I use it to do old people things like frequently check the weather and news, and then feed my addiction of keeping up with everything on facebook. It’s been almost 24 hours now since it’s been dead and I think I’ve kept it that way for avoidance. Sometimes you just want/need to avoid the world. Maybe I have texts and maybe I don’t. Maybe it was someone’s child’s birthday on facebook and maybe it wasn’t. A huge disaster might have befallen half of the world and I am living totally oblivious to it.
Maybe avoidance isn’t the best coping strategy but for now, I have gone through my day believing that everything is right with the world.
