This is going to be one of the longer entries in this series, because it’s the one that I get the most upset about. That’s because, as many of you know, I love working with teenagers. Seeing them suffer and feel as if they are alone can be heartbreaking and stressful for a lot of reasons. And honestly, the people who get affected by this part of the issue the most ARE teenagers.
We all want to feel safe and secure, don’t we? I’m going to admit – I have a bit of an issue with this. I get scared very easily. I joke that I’m afraid of my own shadow. Sometimes, it’s true. I have had many moments where I’ve jumped because of a reflection or a shadow that moved strangely. I get nightmares easily – which sounds silly when I’m 31, but it’s true. And, on top of that, I revert back to being really young sometimes because my brain can’t handle the fear and stress. It’s odd, but it’s okay.
See, now I can actually write a series. I know, everyone thought it wouldn’t happen! Anyway, today, we’re on to part 2 – the physiological needs. How does this relate to spirituality? Does it actually matter? Yes, it does!
I know, I said that I was going to do this months ago, and I never did it. I’m a loser, a bum, I know. Writer’s block can beat your butt a lot, especially if you write for a living. When that happens, you barely have enough brain power to get through writing, let alone things that you want to write but are recreational in nature. So yes. I am finally starting this series!
Goodness, me. First off, I’ve been trying to run this blog for 2 years. Someday, I will actually write in October, November, and December. If I could do that, maybe I could finally get some support for the blog, huh? That being said, today is my 21st birthday. Holy cow! As I said a year ago, I didn’t think that I would make it to 30. Between my mental health and all of the other BS that I tried to get through, I really struggled and was convinced that it wasn’t happening.
But it did.
