True Introspection

Hello all,

I've posted for several years and would like to share that i've found a new drug of sorts,that's more intense than any other and I call it reality.

With reality,i've learned to see things as they truly are;without the need to mask it,as is status quo.

What reality brings to the table is upfront honesty,which may be hard to ingest at times but in small doses can provide a cure for what ails.

Those who know what i'm talking about,rejoice and those who have yet to partake,may I implore you to do so;it won't be disappointing.

You see,i've witnessed way too many people perish,compromise themselves and/or their loved ones or get incarcerated over drugs and I just want to reach that hand to each and every one of you because I care;more than you'll ever know.

Those who have read to this point,I applaud you and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please feel free to post with an expressionary word;we could all benefit from it.

Respectfully
Phoenix

You're welcome......

Stick around long enough to see what i'm beginning to.
I've dug way too deep and this is what I surmised;without reality I have no focus,no reason for being;no purpose.

I need to see what passes me by on a daily basis and feel what it's like to experience it......

For sanity's sake.

Respectfully
Phoenix

Welcome to the thread icehouse3z,

Reality may seem a bit mystifying at times but with all of our help,we can get through things....

We have to believe in ourselves because if we don't we can't possibly embrace the concept.

Thank you so much for replying.

Respectfully
Phoenix
