I feel good today.

No matter how bad things may seen, it’s not forever.

I came home yesterday from an exhausting day at work and all I did was reply to some comments. I didn’t even write a post last night–THE HORROR!). After writing my replies and eating some pizza (because I was too tired to cook anything), I just crashed out on my bed and never woke back up until this morning. I think I needed sleep.

I actually started feeling better yesterday about my haters and detractors because of the article CZBZ posted, which I reblogged. In fact, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my weary shoulders.

I’d been praying about this matter and I believe God led me to read her article. I think everyone who blogs should read it. It’s amazing what reading someone else’s words can do for you sometimes.

I woke up this morning feeling good. The first thing I did was open my window and let the sun and air in. I’m going to cook a nice breakfast and start my day. I’m meeting my daughter later and I think we’re going to the movies. I haven’t been to a movie theater in five years!

I feel creative and I know I’ll be writing today when I get the chance. A few days ago I actually thought about taking down this blog or not writing in it anymore. I can’t believe I would have even entertained that crazy thought. (Never make decisions when you’re depressed).

The moral of this story is that no matter how bad you feel at the moment, it’s only temporary. Have faith that God loves you and will address your issue, no matter how hopeless it seems. If you don’t believe in God, you can call it serendipity or universal justice or whatever. Sometimes “bad” things happen to teach you something. Your enemies can even be your teachers. Everything that happened to me this past week taught me some valuable lessons. I actually feel blessed today.

    • I don’t think I ever would have really done it. Besides, this blog is growing. I have so many more supporters than haters. OM says having haters means your a success. I’m not sure that’s always true but it’s sometimes the case!

    • Oh, and I will never stop stating the way I really feel, even if it offends some, even if my opinions are sometimes unpopular ones. My goal in starting blogging was to be 100% honest — it’s helped me more than you can ever know.

  1. Hi Lucky! You’re feeling better and that makes me feel better and all your readers, too! I’m glad you have clarity now and that you aren’t “obsessing” about what mistakes you might have made. The honest truth is that “We All Make Mistakes.” No one is such a proficient writer that they don’t word things wrong now and then. And no one going through recovery, will always see things clearly. There’s room for error on every side with triggers firing every which way. Recovery sucks. Until it doesn’t.

    The important thing for each of us engaged in blogging, is “good will.” Good will allows reconciliation, understanding, and yes, even forgiveness. The extension of “good will” towards others (even if they offend us) indicates how we treat ourselves. People who are not of good will, are usually harsh with themselves and that’s not a fact, it’s my witness. Maybe practicing “good will” eventually becomes a pattern, making it possible to accept and love ourselves?

    • I appreciate this comment CZ. I’ve realized people are going to see what they want to see, and will read things into something if that’s what they want to believe. There’s a lot of room for error and things can be easily miscontrued when you’re writing about a topic as nebulous and open to different interpretations as psychological disorders.
      I’m not obsessing about this anymore, just laughing. I just wrote a new post poking fun at the different accusations that were hurled at me and how stupid they are.
