I have found that what helps me the most is to write. I am NOT a stupendous writer! lol But I do enjoy it and it is therapeutic to myself. Therefore onward I go and I will continue to do so as long as it serves this purpose and helps. Fortunately or unfortunately to my own determent I write most in my darker moments. But that does not necessarily mean I am a dark person. I mean Hell…I am bipolar. Mania/depression?
I am a firm believer in self expression. Whether it be through writing, art, photography, or any and all other forms that help an individual achieve some peace of mind. With this said…we all deal with different issues that of course range dramatically from person to person. I typically believe there is no right or wrong. No good or bad. What helps one spirit may not benefit another and visa-versa. Beauty and inner-peace is in the eyes of the beholder. Is that even a thing?
Anyways, my diluted poor attempts at writing may not always appease everyone or anyone at all, but as long as they offer me some kind of guidance I am okay with that. Recently I have started to step outside what I call my “norm”. I still haven’t ventured much past, but I am starting to look at other aspects and to different types of posts to give me contrasting takes on things. Because I generally write while down, I seek out positive or informative posts occasionally. I am even to the point of really dwelling outside of my realm of “mental illness” and “poetry” and getting an even more beauteous look at what I consider expression and artistry. Just other forms of expression I suppose. There’s so much of it out there and what amazes me is when I step back and do not get consumed with myself (and trust me I do) there is so much of it to see.
A valid opinion? Or just more ramblings of a madman?
