New Idea ( A New Chapter)

I have been throwing around an idea for the last couple of hours…yes only a couple of hours, but think it would be something to help me with some of my self issues, a self therapy if you will, to write an autobiography of my life. I’m turning 50 next week and have started reflecting on my life and the things I have accomplished along this life as well as my struggles.

I know this is a scary and exciting endeavor; and hope it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings, but I believe it is something that I need to do…as I’ve said before a self therapy exercise. I’m not sure if I would ever try to publish it, but with someone that has struggled with depression and ADD my entire adult life without an official diagnosis I believe it may be helpful to people that are living with it in silence as it has effected many of the decisions I have made in my life and guided the course of my life.

I am planning on sharing some of the work here and opening myself up to the world…scary right?

I know my poetry already opens me up but this is on a completely different level and because I share these blog posts to the rest of the world I am opening myself up to criticism and ridicule to some of the things I’m about to share.

I look forward to this as I hope you do as well…so, with my 50th birthday coming up next week a new and exciting chapter begins.

  1. Ok first of all, happy early birthday, lol. I hit the 5-0 in September, lol. Secondly, why would “your” endeavors hurt anyone’s feelings & if so oh well so long as we know your heart is in the right place. Third, this sounds like a fantastic idea. As you mentioned, great therapy for yourself and who knows how many others you will reach ultimately helping them in some form w/ their related experiences. Kudo’s to you & many blessings in this journey!

    1. I just know there are a lot of things I hold in that I’m going to reveal here that many people may not know, especially my family; and yes it is well meant but exposes a lot of me that people don’t know.
      I am looking forward to this endeavor and know it will bring much comfort to me.
      Thank you for your support as I approach this.

      1. I get we don’t know each other, but i’m tearing up as I’m typing because I know that feeling all to well. I didn’t speak out loud for nearly 40 years because I was considering the feelings of my family & those I care about. I initially began sharing when I realized m
        y family doesn’t know me or the things I’ve been through at all. By sharing my lived experiences I hope to provide some form of comfort for others in letting them see they are not alone in their struggles. c

      2. Yes I didn’t begin to really face it till this year and started to understand how it has effected my entire life and the decisions I’ve made and things I have missed out on because of it…I started therapy and am facing it head on using therapy and meditation; and now this.
        Even though we don’t know each other know I am always one that can listen.

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
