Baseball Cards and Broken Dreams by #lesliefischman
When anything of value gets depreciated, thats not a product of its worth, or significance, sometimes things are best kept personal to oneself. That is their secrets to success, and what makes them unique and or special. Thats never for anyone else to decide. You have to be patient with others, they cannot always win in life, thats not what life is about, its about what you connect to and what and who matters to you and is of interest. Thats not how to stay well. Everything in small doses. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, thats why its important to move forward. Its hard to go backwards sometimes, that just wastes time and effort, and is not the purposes for writing. Writing is about helping others, put together themselves and their lives. Not to be in charge of people, or dictate to them how they should live their lives, thats not how to achieve or live a lifestyle, but by acceptance of your life now, as it is, not by promulgating experiences into the future, by reliving past experiences, that just causes trauma and PTSD. Thats for study only by professionals, patterns of interest, and illness, are not for the general population to study, or make important, that just everyone, when you try to control people, or be a hub of personal interests, anyone who is to create a hub of best interests must be someone of neutral standing, not of any one parties interest, but something written in the best interests of all. Thats called providing a balanced viewpoint, thats not taking a position too far, a position is made, and earned, thats overtime, over years of commitment, and continued effort, made so. Its wrong when someone is doing well, to step on their toes, and interfere with their ability to move forward, rise up off of, or take energy from another, and misuse use it or abuse the kindness of others. Nothing now is as it has ever been. Thats the main point. To be accepting of now and all your privileges in life. Life was much different when I grew up nothing handed to us, everything earned. To what audience I write is me, to myself, I am my audience, thats the secret to my success, as a journal writer since age 5, how I honed my craft, empowered myself.
Personal Note: I am taking some time to rest and work and get a couple certificates in drugs, alcohol, and domestic violence. Until then I will not be posting any new material.
