Yes it’s me. The blog has a new look and everything, so you can tell this time, the repentance is for real.
I started this blog a couple of years ago as a means of creative expression; I wanted to tell my truth, tell my story. Somewhere along the line, I may have lost my way. I became more cautious of things I wanted to say. I became very careful of how I told my truths.
So I came up with excuses not to write. Procrastination this, writer’s block that. For too long I let the voices of fear and doubt win.
I am grateful to be surrounded by people, who through loving words and hateful speech, encouraged me to keep writing. They reminded me that I could not be ashamed of my truths, as I do not owe anyone my precious, precious life.
So this is me getting out of my head, because the only way to silence the voices is to just write, for I cannot let them win. I have accepted that the things I want to write would not write themselves. Stories cannot tell themselves, they have to be told.
So here I am, 4 years later, still writing about things that haunt me, things I can’t forget, things I can’t keep quiet about. I will tell my stories, and the stories that come find me. I will be writing about how I’m trying. Because that’s all anyone really needs to do. Try.
And if you are here, 4 years after, you win. Because it means you’re still trying.
