For a long time, I didn’t write. I gave up on it. Partly because of time, because of passion, and because things in my life simply were not good.
2016 was quite possibly the worst year of my life. So much went wrong in my life that by this time last year I literally made a post on my Twitter and Facebook accounts raising a white flag saying I give up. I ended up depressed, fearing for my future, and just generally in a bad place.
Fast forward a year, and I’m in a better place. I can’t really attribute it to anything except I guess holding on for dear life, or as the proverbial tale about the frogs in the milk can goes (Which I don’t agree with), I kept kicking. I’m at a job that pays a lot better than the one I was at last year. The job itself involves doing much more interesting work.
But this isn’t why I came back. The real reason I came back? Well…I guess you could say I was “manifested” back.
The “Law” of Attraction.
If you’ve followed me on twitter, you know I have a special hatred for the “Law” of Attraction (LOA for short). However, I’ve recently realized just how bad it’s gotten. Now I’ve found that there are now certain people out there that are essentially cult leaders that feign knowledge and expertise in the LOA.
The one thing that I despise most about the LOA is the victim-blaming mentality. Specifically, if something bad happens to you, it’s because you were a vibrational match to it according to the LOA. I have even read an article by a person who clearly is a nutjob who claimed children select the abuse or trauma that they go through before they are born.
From the LOA, I’ve slowly become aware of other woo, such as Black Salve, Coffee Enemas, most MLM products, and seminars that ultimately teach nothing.
I’ve decided enough was enough. I need to get back to writing. I need it.
