Live And Let Go – Stop Chasing the Shadows of Your Anxiety
####  <center>*"You think she's an open book but you don't know which page to turn to, do you?"*</center>

**All the hardship, all the grief, all tears of joy, the lust, the laughter, the pain. This life is but a rollercoaster and if it wasn't for the sake of a good story, what would it all be worth? We're all telling a novel together. The narrative of a species trying to use what's left of their senses to find out the meaning to it all. We keep telling us the tales of our lives to understand what we are talking about. We are a race of forgetting animals and all we do is running in circles, chasing the information we lost, defending what it is we can recall. Or, can we? Neglecting, ignoring, overlooking, cherry pickin', disregarding, skipping, flipping, misremembering …**

Truth is what you say it is. It is interchangeable, it is one but many, it can't be pinned down, the attempt alone will always change it, trust and truth are close vocabularies. Whose truth do you trust? How do you understand honesty, do you innerstand your own? Can you trust your guts? Are you trustful? Trustworthy? Do you even care? Honestly care that much that you work on your own authenticity? Are you committed to your own path, looking for probity inside yourself? Or do you keep projecting yours and rejecting ours? Seek it? Reek it? Freaking believe it?

I only believe in the accuracy of right now. What I know right now is all that matters. And I write it down. And while I do, I am aware that it is inexplicable, indeclinable and at the same time impossible to get a hold on. For the record? Which one? The only people recording you are secret services. To hold against you whatever might have been a true picture of you in whatever particular instance. Do you want to show us your true colors? We see them when you don't try to, we hear you when you're quiet and see you when you don't see us. The more words you abuse the more we understand something different about you. That you're not trying to convince us, you re trying to convince yourself. Maybe you take yourself much too serious. I recommend what I do.

I write down my truth every day. And after a while, I take a huge bag and throw it all away. That's what I do. It keeps me from taking myself too seriously. And from holding on to old truths that aren't mine anymore. I believe in the power of change, in the magic of neuroplasticity, that nothing is written in stone and that we are shaping reality in every second, with every thought and every step towards one another. 

Scribe-describe. To describe is to un-establish. 
Stop Chasing the Shadows of Your Anxiety.

I have to think about this...I'm a writer and student of history.  As a student of history, I believe little of what I read.  As  a writer, I understand the illusion that words can create.  
When I was a teacher, I used to bring in newspapers to the class and show them the different headlines.  Same day.  Same news.  Different editors.  Different truths.  That was my lesson.  Be skeptical--of the papers, of me, of your perceptions.
A good, thought-provoking blog.

Grandma??? Can you read this from heaven??? :)
When I was a child, my grandma (my biggest role model) told me: "Don't make them love you. Make them think!"
Thank you for giving me the best comment possible. Jumped right into my heart and I immediately closed the chamber. It'll stay there forever. As a poster on the walls of my heart. 
I am happy I found you. @ginabot is wonderful! 

I am intrigued. History is such an interesting topic but sadly only a handful of teachers teaches it as critical as you did. Most forget to ask the most important question even: Who wrote it? ;)
Why did you stop?

I got sick.  One of those weird autoimmune conditions that is aggravated by stress.  And I was teaching adolescents who had all been diagnosed with psychiatric conditions.  I think some of them were over-diagnosed, but this was a troubled group and it took great energy to be a proper teacher, to deliver content in a nurturing environment.  It was a rewarding, dream job, up to that point. So now I write and share what I know.  It's a decent substitute.  Look, I met you!
