** Special March announcement, this month saw the publication of the very first book in a six novella dystopian series I’ve been working on since early 2015. “Dark World : The Surface Girl” only $0.99 on kindle, or FREE if you’re a part of Kindle Unlimited! Check it out!
For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I answer a question a day off of this list.
Today’s question : Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Yes, yes it has.
Responding to this with any type of detail will be a challenge because I feel like anything I write will just be very depressing and I’m actually in quite a good mood today. I don’t want to skip or avoid this question however because that’s the challenge of questions like this, is it not?
My greatest fear came true over a decade ago. It still has a great effect on me to this day. I try not to let my struggles or feelings about what happened control my life but it would be silly to deny that it had a great impact on me.
My feelings and perceptions about it still shift from day to day. Sometimes I feel like “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” and other days I feel like going through what I did took so much out of me that I still haven’t been able to recover strength from it.
Living through your worst nightmare changes you. It builds you and it drains you all at the same time. Its a challenge not to let it control your life, but in my opinion you shouldn’t try to ignore or repress the experience either because the last thing you ever want to do is go through that same thing all over again.
