Guess who’s back from the dead?!
… Well the blogging dead, that is,
After a year long unintended hiatus, I triumphantly return back to writing my thoughts aloud. A lot has happened in a year.
I conquered. I failed. I conquered again! I also failed again. But such is life and I’m learning to find the beauty of it all.
There’s a lot for me to share. Seriously, I’ve been a busy bee, but I don’t have the patience for organizing my thoughts right not (details are the bane of my existence), but I wanted to write just for the sake of writing. It’s been SOOOOO long since I’ve written anything for myself, and I suspect that it’s made me a little insane recently.
Last year, I figured out how to work my brain, which led me on this morally superior bent, touting my hyper rational ways of life. For reals, I was this douchey “I”m super smart and can think my way out of anything” person. Looking back, I have no clue how my friends and family tolerated my arrogant ass. But I digress. No matter how “logical” one may seem, you can’t explain away your feelings. In fact, the more I tried, the worse off I was.
My feelings are like an invisible hurricane, uncontrollably destroying everything in its wake, with no end in sight. Generally speaking, that’s where writing comes in. When I write, it’s like releasing a dam of pent up feelings. Like magic, whatever negative feeling I’m harboring gets released into the wild after a nice writing session. For some dumb reason, I quit writing and admittedly it was a terrible decision.
If I don’t process my emotions in a healthy matter, I tend to get self-destructive. Fortunately for me, I’m terrible at being an alcoholic and abusing substances just doesn’t hold its appeal, so back to writing I go! It’s been an interesting year, so I have a lot to unload, so stay tuned for some interesting stories as I dust the cobwebs off of this bad boy! It’s good to be back. 🙂
PS. For my fellow INTPS out there, here’s a nifty article on feelings. It’s good stuff!
One thought on “Is this thing on?”
Glad you’re back!!
