I’ve just learned the way to overcome writers block. All you have to do is, well, just be an emotional wreck which seems to happen about once a month for me… hmmm, very strange. So, anyway, I’m realizing that the drama queen emotional side of me is what kicks out my best blog posts. It’s all about pouring your heart out, and if being on my period is what drives my passion, then so be it. It’s about time I find something good about that time of month. I shall now embrace my womenhood more fully than ever.
Now if I could just get my husband to do the same… 🙂
The bad side to always keeping things to yourself is, you’ll never allow others to know how you truly feel, and as a result may never have the opportunity of helping them. Sometimes it’s just nice to hear someone say, “oh yes, I’ve been there” or “I feel the SAME way”.
I didn’t know what to say, but I do know that when she said that to me, it made me feel even worse. I thought, wow, I must be such a bad missionary if I’m having these feelings, especially since it was obvious she could not relate. In her opinion I was just dwelling on the negative and she was sick of hearing it. In my opinion, all I needed to hear was, “oh, I know it can be hard, I’ve felt the same way, but you’re doing great, it just takes some time, you can do this, I’ll help you, being so far away from home can be rough, and the language is overwhelming, but I promise, you’ll get it”.
