Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog post EVER! This is a monumental step in my life, as I have been subconsciously avoiding habitual writing since I was about 14 years old. I used to spend much of my time writing; poems, song lyrics, freestyle- it didn’t matter. I loved writing, and was always pretty good at it! Somewhere along the way, I think it just became too painful. It was always the primary outlet for coping with the pain I’d endured as a child, until I became old enough to discover drugs, alcohol and other similar mind-numbing activities.
Recently, I’ve turned to LYL for help. I’m soul searching, and working diligently to figure out who I am, what I want, and how I’m going to get it. I created a Facebook group to share my thoughts, ideas and opinions with others who share similar notions, but I’ve found myself readily sharing other people’s ideas instead. I hope this blog will allow me to begin the process of transforming my jumbled thoughts into letters that make up words, which can then be strung together to create sentences. Regurgitating the whirlwind of thoughts in my head is sure to help my peace of mind, and eventually provide the world with something great! I know my thoughts can and will be useful to somebody, somewhere, and that’s all I really need to know. Until next time!
