I really don’t know how to lie. It comes naturally for me to speak my truth, and yes, sometimes it gets me in trouble.
On another note, I’ve admitted numerous times on my blog, I have trouble letting go of what I don’t have control over.
Stick with me, I plan to tie these two statements together. We’re going deep into the recesses of my mind today. Could be a horror show, so be prepared.

My fellow bloggers . . . you are amazing. To all of you who read and commented on my post, Too Much Darkness, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your comments soothed my soul.
The comments got me thinking deeper. I could feel that all of you felt as I do, hurt down to the core for what is happening in our society (terrorizing attacks), but you knew better how to move on. I was stuck in place.
My blog’s most common theme is to look in inward for answers to anything outward that is troubling. So, I asked myself, why am I so driven to find answers about the Las Vegas tragedy? Why can’t I move forward?
Media pushes buttons
Setting tempers ablaze
To remain neutral and kind
Is hard these days
Where are we as a people
Do we really know
Do we want to hurt each other
Or is the vitriol just a show
Am I living in a movie
Where society has gone wrong
Please tell me we’re being fooled
that humans are really caring and strong
by L. Virelli
I recently discovered Twitter. Yeah, I know, I’m late to the party. But boy, I thought Facebook was bad with the vitriol. I found Twitter even worse!
I thought I’d write about my adventurous eclipse experience before it becomes irrelevant, so I quickly put together this post this morning.

Compassion is the spiritual energy that dissolves the negative effects of judgment. ~ Daily Word
Recently I’ve been posting topics about feelings and emotions. I’ve shared my experiences with how emotions have affected my life and what I’ve learned from them. But, there is a lesson I left out.

The true profession of man is finding his way to himself. ~ Hermann Hesse
Sensitivity. Yeah, I’ve got that.
I have a high sensitivity to emotion, both my own and other people’s. In fact, I used to often hear the phrase, “You’re too sensitive.”
