how hard is it to ask for help when you need it?

i was tired of seeing the same images in my head images that made me feel unstable, inadequate a motif of me stumbling down a crooked sidewalk walking just a little bit farther behind the people i love asking them to slow down a few paces asking them not to leave me behind but not...

a mantra: don’t feel

people get angry at themselves for feeling. doesn't that sound absurd? i should have known better. i did know better, but i played along anyway. i let you entrap me against my infallible judgement because it felt good at the time. in the moment, when there was an opportunity to see you, to be around...

I’ve been Bargaining with God

I’ve been bargaining with God but I’m not grieving. Nothing bad has happened to me. I have nothing to complain about. Do you ever do that?
