Overcoming Bloglessness

Forget?

Daily PromptShare a story where it was very difficult for you to forgive the perpetrator for wronging you, but you did it β€” you forgave them.
via Forgive and Forget?.

There, but for neurological chemistry, go I. That’s what I tell myself when I need to forgive someone. Maybe his brain doesn’t fire right. Maybe he doesn’t produce enough serotonin. Maybe her childhood was traumatic. Maybe they’ve been indoctrinated. They can’t help but be who they are.

No one is evil. No one is a monster. Some people are just fucked up and it’s not their fault. It’s beyond their control. We need to have compassion for perpetrators as well as victims. We should try to understand why they are the way they are.

I can forgive everybody. Forgetting is harder. I don’t think forgetting is even wise.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. Time works too. Half a century is a pretty good memory blocker.

  2. Forgetting is stupid, moving on is necessary.
