Shoot Into The Darkness...

I'll break your heart, but I can't stay

Growing up, I didn’t read novels by women. It’s not that I didn’t want to. It’s almost like I didn’t think that I needed to or, I guess, I didn’t know that I needed to. I was perfectly happy in a world contained by men. I adopted the posture of the brooding male as my own. I was Salinger, I was Kerouac, I was any male protagonist in a novel that one of my boyfriends recommended. I didn’t know that there was a specific female sadness so I was content with relating to a generalized one. And in a way, reading these novels was less of a way to relate and more of a way to learn how to be the type of girl that these male novelists liked. One of my first ambitions wasn’t to be a writer – it was to be a writer’s muse.

I wish I knew good sources online to ask questions and talk to people about stuff my friends know nothing about. My friends are AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE of me and let me talk about anything to them and it’s not their fault they can’t offer advice but this isn’t their domain. I feel very, very isolated right now. I feel like I was in a complicated situation before but now it’s just impossible.

I also wish there was a place  to confess all the worries and angry thoughts and mean thoughts that go through my head all the time that I hate having. I feel so haunted and guilty.
