We all go through rough spots in life, i.e. loved ones passing away, losing jobs, break-ups. It seems that within the last year or 2, people around me, including myself, have been enduring a lot of pain and thus growing stronger because of it. Is it because we are growing older? Is it just because I'm starting to mature and notice other peoples' pain?
Of course, I won't disclose any names or information, so I'm going to use myself as an example. About 13 years ago, and what seems like just yesterday, my father passed away and life went on. I never stopped moving. This was just my way of dealing, I suppose. I didn't tell my friends right away. I don't really know why I went about it that way. Maybe I didn't want to be treated differently. Maybe I was just immature and didn't know what to say or how to say it. Also, there wasn't an open online community like there is today. We couldn't broadcast our thoughts so openly and across this vast network as easily as we can today.
Someone breaks up with us and seems to ruin our lives. What do we do today? We can post a blog... a long, angry, uncensored rant about how unfair life is. We can let the whole planet know how horrible this person that broke our heart is... how hard you worked and how much time/money you invested into the relationship while your other half took you for granted. If I could get paid to search the internet for break-up blogs, I think I'd quit my day job and start scouring. Hooray Google!
Long story short, I'm on here to let the world know that I'm here, and I'm strong. I haven't written anything online in a while, and now that I'm a little bit older, I plan to spit some worthwhile blog material starting now. I'm done with break-ups. I'll try to be positive and open-minded and leave behind the pain that I wrapped myself around a couple years back. I've been working extremely hard on myself mentally and physically over the past half year. P-90X has been a part of my workout routine and it's helped me lose almost 30 pounds. I never felt better, and I plan to continue on this way.
Love you guys,
