What’s real? And what looks good/ positive/ fixed up/ not messy? 

 

Prince quote

It’s funny because just this week I read a blog post by a life coach I know who explained she hadn’t posted for a while, not because she hadn’t written any posts (she’d written 6 or 7) but she just hadn’t published them. And last week I did just that! I’ve written numerous posts as the feelings and words come to me and have published none of them. Why? Because they’re messy, sad, sound pathetic, they are a string of questions rather than an answer and they even contradict each other! In one post I found a clear answer and in another I don’t have the answer to the same question.

My conclusion is people and life are real which means messy, contradictory and feel the whole spectrum of emotions…I certainly don’t have all the answers. While it may feed my ego and feel more comfortable to present a consistently positive image of myself on these pages, it wouldn’t be real. What I can do here is be honest, share my stories and experiences to firstly help myself to process my thoughts and feelings, and hopefully help others to feel they are not alone in their humanness when going through life’s dark times. Maybe even to give some insight to those who are supporting their loved ones through ups and downs.

As the awe inspiring Prince once said ‘we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life’ and together is really the only way to do it, I feel…
