Being in therapy is not a sign of weakness. Just because someone seeks mental help doesn't automatically mean they have more problems than you do. If we were being honest, we'd admit that every single one of us is a walking shit-show in one way or another. We deal with depression, anxiety, phobias, abandonment issues, guilt, grief, anger, resentment, insecurity, addiction... etc, etc. Seeking a professional to help identify and correct these problems only means that you are making an attempt to grow. Never be embarrassed about doing that. Be proud. It means you are strong enough to open yourself up completely for analyzation.

That takes much more courage than most of us have.

The Idea...

I've been kicking around this idea lately. It's something that has always appealed to me, whether subconsciously, or consciously. It's something drastic, yet appropriate... uncommon, yet necessary... frightening, yet peaceful. It's an idea that makes perfect sense for me but also forces me to place everything under a microscope. I call this idea "The Great Purge".

The Great Purge is a personal thing. It applies to only the one who puts it in motion. It's the act of cleansing one's life by removing connections to all things that harbor bad feelings... bad thoughts... bad memories. It's the journey of analyzing every single piece of your life, embracing only the things that truly bring you joy, and discarding the rest to be reclaimed by the outside world. I sense this Great Purge looming just ahead on my path.

How soon will I reach it?

It may be sooner than I realize...
