Sorry I’ve been quiet for so long, I do apologize. Things went a little crazy. I suffered some crazy writers block, life happened, and then I began working part time. It’s been an adjustment for sure.
I am finally getting back to the love I have for writing, as well as the writing itself. For this post I want to take a moment and talk about what I have been experiencing. We have all kinds of people in our lives, friends, coworkers, bosses, parents, lovers, spouses, children and the list goes on.
Our relationships with these people are messy. I want to focus on how I process the different ways people treat me. Until recently, I was under the impression that it reflected on me in some manner whether negatively or positively.
Someone close to me once said that people are only capable of what they are capable of and not everyone chooses to grow, learn and expand themselves. This lesson has been huge for me, in realizing that they are just people and they are not to be put on pedestals, which is something I am still working on remembering daily. Just because they may look like they have all the answers, does not necessarily mean they do.
Therefore when these people disappoint me or hurt me, it’s imperative for me to keep in mind that it doesn’t reflect on me. And their motives or reasons aren’t really that important, except as a writer for me they are. I tend to wonder why they would do that. I want to understand their motivations to better portray the messiness that relationships include.
I hope that this little soul-search has been insightful. Soon I hope to have a little something for your reading pleasure rather than just introspection into my process.
