Truth - Day 9

Day 9 - Why I am quitting the 30 days of truth

Yesterday's drove me to madness, as in anger.  I wrote and wrote and wrote.  I answered the question and then kept going.  I was fuming.  Pulling all that from me and putting it onto paper (or screen) was not fun.  It also was not beneficial -- I've already regurgitated my experience with my bully to a therapist.

I can't stand quitting but when I look at the rest of the truths, I realize that the list is extreme and leaning a bit to the negative.  Worst experience, someone who broke my trust, a hero who let me down, etc.  Jeez, Thanksgiving is this week and I prefer to be thankful and happy and focusing on the good and the gratitude. 

So, I quit.  That feels good!

I totally get your decision on this one. I suppose we all have bogeymen who live in the dark corners of our minds. They might poke their heads out from time to time in a number of ways, but who wants to invite them out to play for the sake of a blog exercise?

I support you stopping it too; I'm all for keeping positive, and it looks like it wasn't going to do that for you.

Been thinking about you a lot lately. Have a great Thanksgiving week!

I really wanted to do the 30 days of truth but... like you, some of the prompts are so negative! We should make our own list!

Good job! Good decision!
