Yes, I’m on vacation in Maui but missing my home and all my kids and granddaughter.
I’m here with my husband and sister but their drinking matches are getting boring.
Today a wreckless stranger attacked 2 gay men right on front street in my favorite town in Maui. This upset me very much. They were defenseless in his beating them up. It hit me right now how those two men are feeling tonight. Nobody stepped in to help is the worst part. I didn’t watch but saw everyone run over to witness this unprovoked random act of violence.
The world isn’t safe and there is nothing I can do about it.
Last night I was in heaven working on a new writing project after a wonderful day and today I find myself at a loss for many reasons.
My pain is heavy tonight. One of my readers just wrote about pain and how we must know our own pain before we can be empathetic to others.
I agree and still have my deepest darkest secret which I only share with my therapist. I actually wrote a long essay about it and will discuss it in our next session.
This pain leaves me at times but tonight every part of my body and mind feels it.
Perhaps because of the attack, feelings of low self worth, and some new physical problems which I seriously would rather have than mental health problems. I’m currently in remission of my schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder on meds.
It is wonderful but this secret doesn’t help. I haven’t killed anyone or anything like that but not feeling very spiritual today.
I pray now for those who were attacked and the attacker and those who could have helped but didn’t…
And I pray for me too, for what I’m not sure but for release of whatever is bringing me pain.
Peace and love
