BECAUSE GIRLS ARE COOL – GUNMETAL GEISHA

profileToday I read the posts below written by GUNMETAL GEISHA.

This past weekend I attended a writing conference and although I have been to this conference before; this time it was more emotional.  This time I told myself, “I am only here to learn” but I knew in my heart this was were I would get validation for my writing.  I was asked several times what I wrote and each time the word poetry left my lips I was disappointed in the reactions.  I left feeling defeated, deflated, overwhelmed with grief that once again who I was, wasn’t important.  Of course I am looking back on the whole thing and realizing how self absorbed and selfish I was being.  There is something about expectations and how they sneak into your soul and surprise you with self loathing grief when they aren’t met.

Reading the posts below really hit home for me especially; Is “Never Give Up” a Wise Message?, because it helped put my weekend into perspective.
