    i
    have been drowning
    in the murky waters
    of my thoughts

    anger, sadness, and sometimes
    hate
    have infiltrated my heart
    and held me captive

    although i know
    it is not good
    for my soul

    sometimes i
    welcome these disadvantageous
    thoughts to my mental

    sometimes i
    want to slap
    the next person
    that says...

    “its going to be okay”
    “it could be worse”
    “it will all work out”

    i know these words
    are all true
    BUT

    sometimes hearing that
    is no conciliation
    and provides no
    comfort

    when you are going
    through it
    And….
    i have been going
    through
    IT....

    since these are
    MY
    thoughts and emotions
    i would appreciate it
    IF

    everyone would just
    let me
    feel what I feel
    UNTIL
    I feel
    Better

    i know i will

    but right now
    i am entitled to
    process and meditate on
    my own
    thoughts and emotions

    ~~~~Closing my eyes~~~~
    ~~~~~taking a deep Breath~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~letting it out~~~~~~~~~
    Hmmmmmm…..

    I feel better already

    Let it out so it can go...

    I had a conversation where a friend hurt my feelings by saying,
    “stop trying to fix or solve people’s problems, sometimes people just want you to listen.”
    Some of us have nurturing spirits and it’s a natural reflex to comfort someone in pain or crisis,
    but in that conversation I learned that people find great comfort in great listeners. So that hurt faded with understanding.

    In short, I understand wholeheartedly what your pen so elegantly expressed.
    So go ahead and let loose as many emotional storms necessary for you to get better,
    because I can weather a storm a lot better than a “slap”(j/k on the slap comment)

    I'm sure just writing this did feel better.

    $$RICH$$:

    Thank you for the read and for sharing your thoughts. Sometimes
    people are afraid to admit they have bad or negative thoughts and feelings.
    Just because you have them dosen't mean you will act on them.

    coco:
    Let me first Thank you for the read and say that you are such a delight.
    Being a Moon child I completely understand having a nurturing spirit.
    I am at my best when I am taking care of others. You are very
    correct in your statement when you said sometimes people just
    need you to listen. I am one of those people that sometimes I just
    want to be left to myself so I can process my stuff without people
    trying to tell me how I should feel or look at a situation from their perspective.
    Instead of writing about the situation I decided
    to write about the emotions the situation created within me.
    Anywho...Im Good and yes it did feel good to write
    about it. (btw...I would not really slap anyone ) :)

    Much Luv & Peace

    Peace Sista True:
    I always smile when I see you. :)
    I knew you would understand this scribe. I thought
    about our conversation we had in chat the other
    night when you said you just wanted to BE and DO.
    That's exactly how I have felt...just let me BE so I
    can DO what I need to DO to BE better. Thank you so
    much for the read and for BEing you.

    Much Luv & Peace
