Self Worth and Self Realization

I feel like this is going to be one of those sappy posts where I try to make myself, or who ever is reading this feel good. If not that, the initial presumption, based off the title, will give that pre-conceived perception of what this post might be about. And, well, it might be exactly…

Young, Dumb, and Stupid Decisions.

I haven’t written for over a month, almost 2 months, and I’m fully aware of this. I’ll just be transparent to whoever is reading this and say it’s because I really haven’t felt like writing. But I have my reason for this, too. In short, life is weird. I don’t really know how to say…

Message In Your Misfortunes

I’m reading a book called The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt, and although I’m not too far into it, I came across a part that really struck a chord with me. It was a speech by the Chief Justice, John Roberts. You can find it here: Chief Justice, John Roberts But I’ll go ahead…

Is Pain Real?

I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…

The Unopen Door

Here’s a poem I wrote. A little backstory: I’ve had these “words” on the tip of my tongue for quite some time now. I never knew exactly how to articulate them, or even place them in a proper sentence. I’ve been going back and forth trying to write this poem, but every time, it doesn’t…

Portals into the Past: My Old Poetry

I was going through some of my old poetry I wrote, and don’t even ask why, because it’s beyond me. But as I was going through it, I was fully expecting to have just a series of cringes and maybe even a bit of disgust of myself; my old high school self. But that’s not…

Was God Naive?

I have this problem, one in which I’m trying very hard to overcome, but it almost seems impossible. What is my problem you ask? I can’t stop myself from continuing to start new avenues of creativity, you could call it, without finishing my current one. What I mean by that is, although I haven’t finished…

Why I don’t pray

I want to write about something that I’m fairly certain is going to be close to one of my more controversial posts, if not, my most controversial. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time, but every time I start, it doesn’t feel as if I’m ready. Now, for reasons beyond…

How Two Minutes Changed My Life.

I want to write about a curious thing that happened to me the other day. These past few days, since last Friday actually, I have been feeling quite tired. And I mean that in a literal and metaphysical sense. I was, indeed, quite tired, as I wasn’t getting enough sleep. In fact, the total hours…

Let’s Talk About Libido

Jungian and Freudian psychology, at first glance, may seem similar in nature. This is due to the fact that both Jung and Freud considered repressed libido as the sole cause of a neurosis (mental disease) in an individual. But, like I said, this is only at first glance. Like most things, the devils in the details, and…
