Absent Cause

It’s been a few months since I’ve last sat down in front of a blank page/screen to do any writing for myself: 3 months since my last blog entry and virtually nothing by way or journal entries, written or typed. After the election climate, all the perpetual coverage in the blog and news feeds, I… Continue reading Absent Cause

Repurposed

It’s hard to believe that March is almost at its end. Even though I’ve been telling myself I need to plant my ass down and write an update for “a while”, it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since my last entry about that inconsequential social media block from BT. One of the main… Continue reading Repurposed

10 Over 30

Ten days ago, I hit the big 30 milestone.

Sufferer's Guilt: The Suffering of Others Does Not Negate Your Own

More accurately, a handful did, but I couldn’t find a structure with which to work it in as a progression of the last two. As I put my mind to… Continue reading Sufferer's Guilt: The Suffering of Others Does Not Negate Your Own

Pain Management

I recently started going through the archives of Back to Work from the very first episode and jotting down key takeaways and general notes from my listening sessions. In episode 3, there was a line that strongly stood out to me: It is possible to feel pain without suffering. Beginning to letting go of imperviousness… Continue reading Pain Management

Strength

After acknowledging the truthful weakness of my nature a while back, I turned my attention towards getting myself to the point where I could see myself in the same light others do. Despite the lamenting self-critical tone of the majority of my writing (and by extension, the majority of my thinking), that’s not the persona… Continue reading Strength
