I like it when I can just let my fingers fly and then I look at the screen and it's actual words and sentences and paragraphs. And sometimes those things even manage to dance well together, forming a sort of stage-show portraying my current thoughts and/or feelings and/or whatever.

This is not one of those times. This time, my words and sentences and paragraphs and all have palsy really bad, and they're just sort of twitching.

What's going to piss me off, I think, is when everything that everyone warned me about turns out to be true. My life will become a cacophony of I-told-you-so and You-should-have-listened and You-fucking-dumbass. I don't expect it to be very much fun. It's already started, and it already sucks.

Just because something turns out to be true, that doesn't mean that it was true all along. I think I've written about this before. Like, if I were to announce that I will win the lottery, and then I do win the lottery, that doesn't mean I was right with my prediction. It only means that I got lucky. This is kinda the same deal.

I don't care what people have said to me about this. I didn't want to hear about it then, and I don't want to hear about it now, and I definitely won't want to hear about it in the future.

Some people are just intuitive and others have a knack for sensing patterns that aren't visible when you get too close to the picture, and that's no fault of yours.

You invest yourself 100% in the people who are important to you, and that's not a fault, either. It just means that, sometimes, you aren't able to pull your head out of the water far enough to see the waterfall ahead.

"I didn't want to hear about it then, and I don't want to hear about it now, and I definitely won't want to hear about it in the future." Sorry if I broke the rule. :o(

I don't think you broke any rule.

21st Century "forrest from the trees"

The pixel from the image . . .

. . . any words of wisdom for those of us who may still be unable to do so for themselves?


Might a hug from your favorite NakedGirl help? ;o)

I don't have any wisdom. I'm just muddling through, and not doing a very good job of it.

Hugs might not always help, but they never hurt!

I'll just add it to your tab. :o)

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
