Writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. The first thing I wrote was a poem in eighth grade. Penned anonymously, I distributed it around the school. Within days, It was everywhere and all the members of the school board were trying to find who wrote it. I came forward and was congratulated, fed a few extra credit points for my English class, and then sent on my way.
That one experience got me hooked into writing. Over my lifetime I've had many tough times and I feel that I have valuable advice to share. In my opinion. If you have wisdom that could make someones life better, if not a littler easier, then you have an obligation to share it. So I am in a form that I can utilize the best.
I am not a therapist or a doctor. I'm not anyone with any credibility recognized in an academic or professional sense, but my 'skills' have served me well and helped many close friends and family.
Hopefully, I can help whomever reads my articles.
