It's not a feature, but I've posted a new column in the gallery at Intrepid Media. It is rather heartfelt and very personal, but I think it recounts something that I'm sure happens to a lot of people, perhaps not everyone.
I usually save such personal pieces, as in personal matters that I don't feel comfortable sharing with everyone, for my personal journal, but I think this particular experience is one I wanted to share and put out there, because I needed to.
Up until I finally sat down and poured my heart out for eyes other than mine, I felt really weighed down by the emotions I was wrestling and struggling with in order to deal with it all. Writing this piece has been incredibly therapeutic, and I feel better now that it's out there than I have felt since what I talk about in the column took place.
My favorite thing about this column is it being a testament to the power of writing as a means of therapy. I really enjoyed writing this one, truly. There is nothing quite like it, I think, to have a vocation or passion that can do that for you when nothing and no one else can.
I do hope you will mosey on over there and take a look at R-E-S-P-E-C-T. You don't know what it means to me.
Thank you for reading my blog, and hopefully, my work over at Intrepid!
