Oh dear, how easy is it to get wrapped up in pomp?

Updated on August 19, 2011

Don't take yourself too seriously

Ever heard the saying " Don't take yourself too seriously, it's not like any of us make it out alive anyway!", I didn't think so by the way some people fight tooth and nail with strangers about their beliefs, because obviously only they have the right answer, right? ha ha.

So how do you get entrapped in to this serious style of debate? Well you first off read articles that enhance your learning and develop your opinions, unless you have already gone in with a closed mind, and then you are just butting heads.You start out as a new writer in awe of all that went before and people with presidence and position. Yet is this not why we are writers in the first place, to escape the facade of life? We may have serious information to distribute and share, that is brilliant, but who says that another person has the right to make you feel that they are superior or that your personal opinion is obviously bizarre and strange to their logic, when that is there logic. Half of the time people with views so strong are crackpots themselves and have no clue that the rest of the world observe them as strange . They have their own idea of reality.

I have finally got why I could not write. I was not always being myself. I am not a serious academic, or a political writer. But that does not mean I should be made to feel I should mute myself and neither should anyone else.

What I have to say is not always serious and sometimes it is. My debate may not be as strong as some, but who wants to sit arguing with fools all day? I cut the chains of that behavior long since, only for people to sometimes pull you back to those ways. A quick recheck away from the seriousness of it all soon brings the equilibrium back.

If people who scream, shout and aggressively put their opinions across behind pseudonyms were truly correct or powerful they would be in high paying jobs or leaders of massive revolutions. So whilst they are free to have their opinion, they are not free to make me or anyone else feel guilty for having theirs. If they try to then they are usually killing the very thing they think they are fighting for, which is freedom of expression.

So if I have any piece of information for someone reading this, praying to make money or upset by what they have experienced just remember that this is a computer screen. Get up and walk away if you are upset by someone and to those trying to make money. Forget everything else, write what you wish to, you never know who wants to look for that very opinion.

    See if you can find any of the articles -- since collected into books -- that Erma Bombeck wrote in the 70's and 80's. If she were still alive, she would have been a successful blogger. She wrote about the world around her, a mother and housewife in a changing world. Surely that would be a valid description for you, too!

    Are you saying that you are unleashing?


    It doesn't matter what you write about, really. What matters is that you stay true to yourself and even find/explore yourself when you write. Sometimes it takes awhile for a writer to come out of their shell.

    The great thing about writing is that it can be used as an escape, to inform, as an outlet, as a venting/rant (like you did here), but I think it's important to keep an open mind and be thoughtful (not of others, but within yourself).

    Congratulations! You have been unleashed.
