I’m trying to decide what methods I want to use to record the stories that I want to get out of my system, to share in some way. I figure I can journal it…blog it…do a show like Geoff does (podcast) or something similar. Topics I’d like to get out of my system, and probably discuss are the why’s how’s and effect’s of:
I’m inclined to, for myself start out by:
- Writing an essay about each of those topics, probably start with my experience, potentially even interview those involved at some point about their recollection as well if it seems necessary.
- Write another one based on research, once I’ve done both of these I’m curious to see how long they will be, even if they might be book worthy.
- Some of these topics at this point I’m desperate to talk about, for instance the experiences that I had when I was sent away to the desert to be fixed…I want to talk to parents as well as kids who have/might have to go through something like that and I would LOVE to talk to other people who went through this to compare notes on the outcome…same thing with an involuntary boarding school enrollment. I think it would be healthy to first record my experience and insights somewhere.
- I don’t know what will come after all of this, I was told by a psychic that I’m carrying around a lot that I need to embrace, and not reject which is why I’m inclined to share. If I’m not confident enough to share my experiences then I don’t feel like I’m truly embracing them, more like I’m continuing to repress and let them bring my opinion of myself down even more. I was described as standing on a volcano terrified of lava that really represents power that I possess but fear. Time to get over these fears and embrace them…I’m going to go start typing offline now…
