I really just wanted to scathe the surface to give you all an idea of what I’ll be writing about, so that you can decide if this is something you’d be interested in reading. Not that this is even something I’m doing for the purposes of others reading it, because while that would be awesome of anyone who wanted to know my story more in depth, this is more of a new coping strategy than anything else.
My life has been a constant uphill battle between impossible circumstances & tragic happenings, from untreatable diseases & conditions, to aging out of the foster care system, struggling to find myself, & so much more that I won’t even touch base on just yet. Just know that regardless of our personal standing, whether you hate me or love me or don’t even know me at all, if you choose to read the blogs to come after this, it will change how you see me as a person forever.
I’m done being ashamed of the things I’ve been through, things I was forced through, & I’m done letting arrogant assholes use circumstances that were so far out of my power or control spread negativity about myself. I’m through with being embarrassed to be honest when people ask what seem like the most menial, trivial questions about life. I’m tired of answering questions with responses that are unexpected, & being judged for it just for being truthful.
When I first heard the title of the well known series, “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, I swore that it was the perfect title to describe my life, & some days I still feel this way from time to time. It started out as a joke that someone else made, how the title suited me, then it sort of manifested itself to be more true than I’d have ever been able to imagine before.
If there’s one thing you should know about me upfront, it’s that 99% of the time I have no problem speaking the truth regardless of how it affects others. The truth needs to be told, & as they say, sometimes it hurts. Writing this blog might hurt me a little at first, but my hope is that in the long run, the old adage “the truth shall set you free” will prove to be true for me. If you’re gonna follow me on this journey, be prepared to laugh, maybe cry, & probably reconsider quite a few things about life in general.
If you’re joining me on this journey through wherever it may take me, through whatever my brain feels like writing about from a day to day basis, be prepared to hold on because it’s likely this road will get relatively bumpy before everything smooths out on the surface. Thank you to whoever is reading this, & if you are, I hope you’ll check back soon to read about me. My goal in life is to use what I’ve been through to somehow attempt to help and/or benefit others, so while some of the things I’ll write about will be rather grim, maybe someone will take some inspiration from it for themselves.
