I think I’m at a decision point in my posting, described in the well used quote by Yogi Berra, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it”.
I’m very aware that tagging any of my posts with “write” or “writing” garners more attention from the posting and reading public, they are popular tags. But writing the post with that in mind does not necessarily address the original purpose of the blog, that of my documenting events in my life, or the way I think, particularly regarding depression. So you see my dilemma?
Even though the depression I may be suffering is not a severe as many others, and I don’t want to minimize theirs or mine in any way, it is still a journey that I must travel. I had hoped to lend to someone, anyone, a bit of my experience and through it offer some hope, some light at the end of the tunnel, and know it’s not an oncoming train. I had hoped I could do that through writing.
There is lots of good, heck amazing, writing out there, at least to my novice eye. I would be proud to be counted among any of them. If I can do that and follow my original goal then all the better. I enjoy doing this and hope I have touched a chord with someone. I’m constantly amazed when i read some of the other posts at how many people seem to be in pain, I want to be able to reach out to all of them and offer emotional support if nothing else.
Back to the fork…..I’m going to try and take both.
