Re. I lost count.

I think I made it ten days? Eleven? Who knows. I’m not gunna go look, that would just make me hate myself a bit. I really wanted to write, every day, most wouldn’t judge me if they knew why I went missing completely, the past few days, lets just leave it at there has been some horrible family shit going on. That’s besides the point, I faltered, I failed, but I haven’t given up.

 

I genuinely considered faking blog entries from previous days, and blaming the resulting weirdness on wordpress’ shittyness, and then when the smallness of that made me shrink, I considered admitting defeat, and taking down this whole thing, in the name of grief. Know what though? I really didn’t want to do either of those things.

Even if I make mistakes, I choose to see myself as perfectly flawed. So here I am baring my authenticity, I feel vulnerable, scared, shaken, lost, sick, disgusted, worthless, and bleak. The thing is, it’ll all be okay. I am in control of my own life, and happiness, though I can not control circumstance, nor do I want too, because oh, what a wonderful ride it is.

Ride.

 

So, I stumbled, I didn’t write, but I want too, so now I’m going too.
