I'm just writing to help cope...
That's how a this blog post first originated. I stumbled across what you are about to read in my journal. I'm kinda bummed out because I didn't date it, yet there is still some truth and wisdom to be told within it. This was a moment in my life when I was going through a bout of depression and many things that I once knew, all disappeared. So at that, here's my journal entry...
I wonder if someone else in this world feels the same as I do. Probably... There's a lot of people out there. It's a journey attempting to know myself or even finding out who I am. Yes in this reality which we reside in, my name is "John." But I ask myself, who really is John? What makes me have the personality qualities that I'm delt with from birth? As time goes, people change. We live, we breath, we evolve. There's only one catch, we either evolve slowly with the rest, or we push boundaries and evolve like the greats. Heartbreaks mend, but letting others hold us back from personal development are the poison which will kill us quickly. Evolving oneself will slowly creep to a stop and then we become comfortable. Stagnant in the rut of self de-evolution. Break free, keep learning, keep evolving, and most importantly, keep smiling.
Now if you do not know me personally, it would be hard to understand why I wrote this journey entry in such a jumpy manner. It's kinda just how my thoughts come to me as I write. What I wrote above is exactly what came out of my journal. When ever I go back to read old entries I love it. It's like I am going back in time to read the thoughts that I once had. The moral of this blog post is not just to push boundaries and keep evolving, but to buy a journal. Keep one with you everywhere and write down your thoughts. It helps with stress, coping, & clears the mind.
