My last post seems to have sparked concerns in the wrong direction so consider this a clarification if not a retraction. My posts have always retained a realistic yet hopeful note, and this truly reflects my default setting. However, I do intend to present the significant events in my life in all honesty, as I fight my way through the changing narratives. As much as I fall dangerously close to this category of persons, I do tire of the ever-optimistic stance from others on occasion. In addition, I don’t want to present my struggles only after I’ve emerged stronger and better. This explains the unfiltered, emotionally-driven post from this morning.
I concluded that post damning myself for my relentless hope, as though it would be the end of me. On the contrary, events have transpired since that post and these new developments have resolved matters quite favourably, indicating to me once again that there must be infinite ways for any situation, no matter the scale or depth of despair it presents, to be redeemed.
To paraphrase my earlier sentiments with equal conviction:
Fuck, I DO see it! I was right again!
Thank you for the comments and concerns, the support was vital and appreciated.
