Some Candid Thoughts – 14/07/20

I was told: no one wants to hear about your problems. No one is interested in them. They’re not problems, I wanted to explain, they’re reflections, ruminations, story-telling. Is anyone bothered by the tales I share? I’m sharing hoping for relatablity. For the ability to connect, to cause a feeling, or emotion, within the person who’s reading.
 
I don’t mean to perturb, though sometimes my shares will shock. That’s not my main intent. I am concerned by their statements. Because, if it is true that people don’t want to read, why do I have readers return to read my words, the numbers may have fallen but of my release, I am still hanging on.
 
I am grateful for each single word you read, which you digest. If you can’t make it all the way through, I understand, some topics may not be for you. But I appreciate that you are here as part of a type of therapy, the sharing allows an offloading feeling, the heaviness of a topic shared between others lightens the load.
 
I’m not a woman constantly filled with turmoil, a walking accident, a travelling mistake. I suffer and thrive from many things that you do, too. We could be one and the same, for all I know.
 
We may not be so different after all. Thank you for your comments and encouragement on my posts, also. They really do mean a lot, and make me feel as though I’m on the right path with my writing.

  1. You touch and delve into a broad variety of personal life experiences that often touch on my experiences in my travels through this universe also, even though obviously our home country experiences can be quite different at times …
    Our differences do not supercede our similarities .
    You are surprisingly prolific in the breadth of your willingness to share .
    You are correct that I do not always follow through to the end of each and every post and then I am able to just listen to your delightful verbal postings.
    This world is often almost more than a body is able to handle …
    So thank you for reminding me that I am not by myself in my attempts to muddle my way through it !

    1. Thank you, Paul, for your beautiful comment. It really touches me to read that you say your experiences can often bear similarities, in part, to my own, and that despite differences, our similarities still linger. I love that you enjoy my recordings also, as I suspect that for some, the recordings’ consistent presence as of late may take a little getting used to. And I do aim to share the parts of myself that I feel need healing or to be told.

      And you are right: sometimes the world throws at us too much at a time, to make us think we cannot handle the tirade of Mother Nature, but truly we can, we are strong, it is within us. Thank you for being here, reading my words and coming along with the ride.

  2. ‘I’m sharing hoping for relatablity. For the ability to connect, to cause a feeling, or emotion, within the person who’s reading’ Yes, that’s the whole purpose of us writing on our particular sites Lauren. To connect, elicit a feeling, emotion. And for cartharsis if wanted….

    Yes, we write to connect and draw out emotions. And for cathartic purposes if needed…
