This is My Therapy

dontbeanidiot

I used to complain a lot. I used to wonder why things would annoy me so much, then one day I accepted the brutal truth.  I realized I was allowing it to happen.  I still complain now, but I devised a plan to disguise it as a blog or social commentary,  but  if you know me, then you know I talk a lot about it too.  I can’t afford a shrink, so the next best thing for me to do when I need to vent, is to write about it.

I’ve been doing it for sixteen years, and my trick is to make my complaining appear like a form of art by wording it eloquently and making each post interesting, compelling, and sometimes funny.  It’s healthy for me to get it out, and it keeps me evolving. It’s only detrimental if I keep it inside and allow the shit to bother me.

These are the stories of my life because ultimately, I write what I know.   They have all happened to me in one way or another. I may have changed some names to protect my supporting cast, but ultimately, you know who you are.

When I write, I elaborate to be descriptive so you feel like you’re really there. I curse because it’s effective, and I make no apologizes if I offend you because it’s your choice to be offended, and it’s my choice to not feel guilty about any word of it that offends you.

I’ve made the same mistake more than once when it comes to life, love, and relationships but alas I still try, to try again. I’m a romantic by nature, and an optimist by nurture.  I believe in love because it is the hardest thing to explain, but the most powerful emotion on the planet.  Sometimes it makes me do dumb things, but other times it makes me do some great ones.  A lot of those stories are in here.

If you find this blog intriguing or captivating, please comment or let me know.  If you are compelled to re-read a story because it reminds you of YOUR life, then share it with someone else.

I do this because the world needs to read more than just tweets, status updates and likes. Don’t let anyone make you think that you have to limit yourself to 140 characters.  That’s not real life.

  1. Ah! Another person who blogs out their shit! I love it. Writing is how I process my life, and I’m finding it fascinating to see how things have changed over the past five years (tons!). Back when I was a merchant mariner, I bitched and complained a ton. I remember going home from being on ship and away from home for around 7 months, and noticing how much I complained. My past 5 years have been extremely transformational (funny how stuff started happening about a year into blogging), and as such, I don’t complain a whole lot anymore. That said, I totally love and honor your doing this for yourself! -Susan

    1. Yes absolutely! I have to write about my shit, otherwise I will become a shithead. hahaha It is so wonderful to meet you Susan. I feel exactly the same way about writing. It’s how I process my life. You were a merchant mariner? That is absolutely cool. would love to be on a ship for a few months. What a interesting experience that would be. I’m sure you have some amazing stories. Ok, be well and again, great to me you. Thanks for reading.

  2. I love this so much! Blogging is therapy for me too, I was so scared to start a blog for so long but then I just thought ‘Fuck it’ and it’s helped me so much. Even if no one reads it, the very act of writing it all out is really helpful. I think it keeps me moving, keeps me aware of where I’m going wrong and where I’m doing well 🙂
