I Have Tried


I have tried so many times to just reach out in life. It seems that it is not the right thing to do because of the backlash or the feelings I end up with. People have wondered why I live such a tight-knit life. This is why. And I’m at an age now where I have finally learned my lesson.

I tried. I really did. So I am taking a break. At the moment, I just can’t anymore. I have to take a break. If people want to reach out to me, fine. I’m willing.¬†People have my phone number. They can call or text. But I am tired of having emotional doors shut in my face.

I have enough stress in my life without worry about efforts or anything else. I am taking a break. I’m taking a break from Facebook personally and from this blog at least for a while.

See ya when I see ya!

I have felt this way lately. Maybe you have, too.

Catastrophizing – How to Feel Joy Without Fear –


Sometimes Ignorance Is Bliss

What a simple and very true phrase. Not knowing certain things can really be the best thing in the world at times. Some information is just unnecessary and some is painful and some is just something you can’t do anything about.

Before you go searching for answers or truth, be aware that it could be more than just an answer. It can be something painful that when you have knowledge is something you wish you had never known. You can’t unknow something. And sometimes it isn’t worth knowing.

Learn from someone who should have remained ignorant.
