My friend David told me today that he was concerned about me because my blog posts sounded kind of sad and low. The truth is that it is kind of a victory for me to say things that are real even if they sound a little bit down. Since I used to believe that it was my responsibility to hold up the emotional state of every person I ever came in contact with (a really good case of the Messiah complex!) it is a big step for me to just be real and say things other people might not understand or even agree with.
And, David, this victory in my life makes me very, very happy and full, full of joy.
Thanks for your prayers for me, though, friend. I'll take those any time for any reason.
