As the entire Western world knows, Facebook loves to remind us of our pasts.
In my case, that includes not only all of the lovely pictures and funny things that I post (remember the vagina beauty contest and the vampire dildo? Fun times…) but also blog posts from that date in history.
Usually I just ignore them, because, well, I wrote them and don’t need to read them again. Lately I’ve been reading them. And they sound JUST LIKE ME. Is that a good thing or a bad thing that I write so completely in my own voice? I can hear the people on both sides of the imaginary conversations so clearly.
But it made me think about why I stopped…
Why did I?
I really don’t know.
It’s not like the imaginary conversations have gone away.
It’s not like I am not bleeding internally for the lack of a creative outlet.
It’s not like I am still weird and struggling like we all are.
So why not start. Maybe not with the self inflicted pressure of daily writing (you mean discipline?) but just now and then. When I need it.
I can stop any time I want.
