d, it can then be confront
ed and life can be alter
ed in a positive
For intance, after dropping out of high school, settling for any administrative
job that happened to come my way, quitting dance
class, quitting creative writing
class, etc... I realized that I am a quitter and exceptional
ly lazy. It occurred to me that a pattern
was forming and I was trap
ped, never moving forward, yet abhor
. That is why I am going to finally (after having been out of school since I dropped out and got my GED... 5 years), ease myself into college.
Another realization I came to just a few months ago was that I was enduring mild (or not-so-mild, it's relative I suppose)anxiety
when it came to going out in public
on my own. I would not go places if another person was not accompanying me. I believe it was caused by the fear
that arose when I was mugged
a few years ago (along with other negative
ing experiences which I'd rather not discuss right now). I overcame it by forcing myself to do little things like go to a coffee shop by myself to read or write, I also started going to parties and art openings alone too (like I did before all this came into play).
It's never hopeless
, it just takes long periods of soul searching
and looking within for answers, not thinking from the ego, but think
ing at a deep
er level. Writing whatever flows at night is a good thing to do.
I'm sure I'm stemming of topic, but it sort of goes along with what I've been experiencing and the realizations that have come to me as of late...
Good luck Templeton
with dealing with your issues, good luck everyone, for no life is perfect.
