Original Story

Who am I to tell anybody how to help themselves and heal their lives when I am such a broken mess of a human. As I survey the wreckage of my garbage life, I realize I must be the world’s biggest imposter. Why should anyone heed my advice when look where it’s got me. No- I stand by the tools I have found- it must have more to do with my total suckage as a human being.

Fml, fuck me, fuck this sux!

Story Retold 

Ok let’s call a spade a spade, that was pretty dark.
It wasn’t easy to admit, but it is honest, a place I can go on a really awfully, terribly bad day.

Life is full of ups and downs. Every good rollercoaster has them. Yes right now feels pretty crap and I am being really hard on myself. And ya shit sux. Even if right now feels like the worst, I can look back and see how far I have come, even on a really bad day (like what I shared above- if I try really hard). I might be blind to that truth in moments, but overall I know. I know I have come along way. As imperfect as I might be (am, no might about it) life is about the process.

Yes, I still have my wounds and my bad days, (sometimes weeks, occasionally months, hopefully no more years). If people can learn from my hard times and grow into stronger, healthier, more integrated versions of themselves, even when I am feeling like a broken mess of a human. Then I guess it is my privilege to share some of the dark places I can go.
