“After the turmoil halted, there was nothing to be confused about.
The shadow of depression had already made a home in her mind and body.”
Every month, G.G. Renee of All the Many Layers provides writing prompts that encourage self-discovery while getting on into the habit of releasing via art or writing. Seeing as I can only draw stick figures and smiley faces, writing is the avenue I’ve decided upon.
I don’t think it comes as a surprise that over the years my writing has become less about me and more about helping others. I’ve kind of lost my mojo over the years but have found peace in my short-form shares via IG captions and tweets. But I miss the days of personal blogging.
I miss being able to keep up with the lives of other bloggers through their writing and personal essays. I miss when the words didn’t have to be pretty and come with some sort of underlying takeaway, other than the lesson learned from what was shared.
So instead of searching the internet for it, I figured I’d start with doing just that myself. I’m going back to my roots: writing for me, and writing for my healing.
I hope you all don’t mind, but this next month is for me.
