2015 has been a challenging a**kicker of the year. It was all I could do to maintain my mental facilities to survive day to day, let alone write. This is my first entry in months. Although I did make it to ComicCon, I never posted the pictures. Everything was a struggle this year. I endured one breakdown after another.
A breakdown of strongholds.
These past five years have been a continuous, non-stop breakdown of strongholds for me. I lost a lot. Not sure what I gained.
Here's what I think I gained:
Freedom - There's nothing left I have an emotional attachment to except my writing. That's it.
Hardened heart - I'm not super sensitive to others and their hardships. I don't feel obligated to get involved in everyone's personal problems. Guess what? Live goes on for all concerned.
Self-sufficient - I've learned not to depend on others financially and emotionally. I'm ok being alone with me. If I can't afford it, I typically say forget it and skip purchases/extras (unless it involves parents. ugh)
I kinda sound like the Grinch, huh? Yeah, kinda feel like him too. But it works.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
