As the title says, hi.
I found this site today and was kind of blown away. I’ve searched for a blogging community that allows your own platform and being able to chat with others for a long time. And somehow I finally found it today. I’m very grateful and excited to be here. I’ve read some people’s stuff already and it’s nice to get an intimate view of strangers’ lives. In this day and age, everything seems so skin deep and so it’s wonderful to see actual reflections of people through their writing.
Anyways, I digress.
I’m here because I need to start journaling, for real this time. I lost my dad to suicide 2.5 weeks ago. I’m extremely lost. I’ve received a lot of love and support from friends and family and that has been really nice. But I haven’t really looked inside myself because everything hurts so much. I’ve resorted to drinking too much almost every night – which is an old pattern I had in my younger days that I had to work hard to get out of. I know there are more ways to heal than isolation and booze. So here I am. I just need to get out of my head.
I’m hoping I’ll post here at least once a week. Writing used to be my absolute escape growing up. I was honored to usually be the best writer in my class from kindergarten all the way through high school. I love to write personal things; I’ll share gratitude, sorrow, concern, hope. I also looooveee creative writing and I hope to pop in a few epic stories here and there. I love astrology and I’ve recently started dabbling in tarot cards so I may share some of the readings I do for others (anonymously named of course) and of my own.
So yeah that’s me. I look forward to getting to know this community and maybe making a few virtual friends as well.
Have a nice day, everyone.
