"Today was a Difficult Day," said Pooh.
“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.
“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”
“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.
“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.
"Nothing, really," said Piglet. "Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don't feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.
"But goodness," continued Piglet, "Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you've got someone there for you. And I'll always be here for you, Pooh."
And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day,… he thought that his best friend had never been more right."
I love this quotation - I like the simplicity of this situation and it has helped me on difficult days.
Unlike Pooh and Piglet and I know that I and other Moodscopers may not have a friend who understands about difficult days and be there for you by sitting near you. Sometimes even a text, an email, a phone call on a difficult day can make us feel someone understands.
Sometimes people close to us don’t know we are having a difficult day as we will not tell them. I like the way Pooh and Piglet feel they can communicate with each so simply that it is a much loved book for such a long time for adults and children.
