Perception of Reality

INTRODUCTIONI do not know what to call this thing that I will be talking about. When I try to look it up, I find things like derealization with anxiety, and that’s most definitely NOT the case with today’s story. That leads me to the disclaimer: This is not a story of mental distress. Rather, itContinue reading “Perception of Reality”

On Feeling Important

INTRODUCTIONI was watching a YouTube video that was a collection of TikTok shorts, where women talk about how awesome they are, and how they no longer need men. Their words were one thing, but their delivery was very peculiar. Their delivery, facial expressions, and posture told a different story of smug arrogance and a highContinue reading “On Feeling Important”

A Big Sign of Healing

This entry isn’t going to have sections, and it could be brief. After sitting down to write, I remembered that I had some draft writings saved. So I went to check those out, and there were FOUR recently written drafts. They were very long and included some anecdotes to serve as warnings of situations whereContinue reading “A Big Sign of Healing”

Relationships and Moving Too Fast

INTRODUCTIONI think that everyone has heard the phrase “moving too fast” when talking about relationships. Typically, this is within the context of romantic relationships, with regard to sexual activity. This is a distraction. Having sex with someone before you know them is very risky. You don’t know what’s going on with them, and they don’tContinue reading “Relationships and Moving Too Fast”

The Argument for Being Alone

INTRODUCTIONWhen we are young, we get sold so much garbage from our parents and others in our lives. We absorb these questionable things into our minds, into our psyche, and we then allow those things to run in the background to help us with life’s decisions. Those untruths build up a narrative. Narratives can makeContinue reading “The Argument for Being Alone”

Toxic Media: It Is NOT A Wonderful Life

INTRODUCTIONWhen you spend enough time in therapy, you start to see things in the wild that are of concern when it comes to mental health and engaging in healthy thinking in general. It’s like buying a new red station wagon, where you drive down the street and you see every single red station wagon. Previously,Continue reading “Toxic Media: It Is NOT A Wonderful Life”

A Word About Flying Monkeys, and More Details on My Narcissist Experiences

NOTE: I give a political example of Narcissism and Flying Monkeys early in this document. However, I get into other examples beyond that. This is NOT a political post. That said, when writing about Narcissists and Flying Monkeys, this particular event in American History is impossible to ignore. INTRODUCTIONIn the past, I have written aboutContinue reading “A Word About Flying Monkeys, and More Details on My Narcissist Experiences”

You MUST Accept the Truth, and a Message to Trump Supporters [Autism, Relationships, Politics]

INTRODUCTIONI’m almost 57 years old. During my time, I’ve been lied to many times. Some of these times are bigger than others, to the point that they become a scam. My earliest memory of a lie like this was when I was 16 years old. My exhaust pipe had fallen loose and was dragging. IContinue reading “You MUST Accept the Truth, and a Message to Trump Supporters [Autism, Relationships, Politics]”

The Fine Art of Self-Hatred

INTRODUCTIONIf there is just one thing that I’ve learned in recent years about self-hatred, it’s that you don’t realize how much self-hatred you have until you meet someone who hates themselves even more. There are many sources of self-hatred. In our formative years, it can come from things our parents might say. In school, itContinue reading “The Fine Art of Self-Hatred”
