So, I’m new at this blogging stuff so please be patient with me. This blog is not about me. I will be sharing personal thoughts and stories with you, but this is about YOU. I want to hear your thoughts and stories. If you have questions I will answer truthfully. I want this blog to be open and honest. I just want to help people. Let’s start.
My thoughts have been a bit dark this week. There has been a lot of stress in my life lately. As you all know that tends to bring out the dark thoughts. One thing has been swirling around in my head all week is how unfair it is that we are looked down upon and made to feel bad for being negative. I have a dark sense of humor and I am also able to laugh at the bad things that have happened to me in my life. Which my therapist said is healthy. Apparently being able to joke about the shit in your life makes people uncomfortable according to my boss. Why do I have to change who I am because it makes other people uncomfortable, but people don’t have to change because they make me feel uncomfortable? Perky overly positive people get on my nervous. Is she telling them to stop telling me I need to be more positive? No. Who decides these things? Why am I made to feel ashamed for feeling the things I feel? I recently read something about that. The psychiatrist said people are made to feel ashamed for what are considered bad feelings, and that no feelings are bad feelings. Feeling sad doesn’t mean you are a bad person. You are allowed to feel sad. I read a book about Lincoln’s depression. The author said people with depression were born with out the rose colored glasses everyone else were born with. We see the world as it really is. There is nothing wrong with that. There is nothing wrong with you! Don’t let people make you feel like your feelings are something to be ashamed of. You are stronger then them for allowing yourself to feel those feelings.
