It's been a while since I've shared true thoughts and feelings here. Just when I was learning to "write it out", life kicked in again and I went back to old habits. Soooo much has been going on thats it's hard to find the time to sit down and write, write for me and my sanity.
During my hiatus, Ive learned a few things. One, writing things down free's my mind and blogging free's the burdens. I've also learned to practice what I preach!!
For months I've been helping people with different issues. Offering advice, prayer and just being the ear to vent to. Lately, I've found myself in some of the same situations that I've helped others about. Not being one to ask for help or share whats eating away at me, I find myself having to go into 3rd person. I know it sounds crazy but I would have to keep asking myself "why" until I got to the root of the problem. "Why are you hurt", "why are you angry". And when I answered that question, I would have to go deeper and quetion WHY again. And I would keep asking and keep answering until Ive gotten to the root of my issue. Crazy, I know...but it works. I've also had to give myself the same advice I would give someone else. Sounds easy but we fail to do that. I found myself asking myself..."If your sister/friend came to you with this problem, what would you tell them?" Some times we have to step back and step out and see ourselves from a different set of eyes.
So...even though I've been MIA...I'm still learning and growing!!
PS...I miss my blog friends. :(
