Why do I keep posting here?

Why do I keep posting here?

I was just looking at how many posts I have penned here. Quite a few indeed. I started to think about why. I came up with a few reasons.

1.I think mainly it is knowing that someone somewhere in this world may stumble upon a post and relate to it. If they feel less insane or less alone, it was all worth it.

2.I think we all want to be heard and understood to a point. Some of us are at a point where we do not think anyone will understand, but maybe being heard is enough for the moment.

3.I think at the very least we aspire to help everyone else. I not only post, I reply to others comments and I think it is important to reach out if we can.

I think it is interesting to hear the comments of others. It becomes a means of philosophy to a point. All we know of science or of religion comes from philosophy. It lies behind and above all other knowledge we have or use. A wise man once said “To be happy, one only must be able to confront, which is to say, experience, those things that are. Unhappiness is only this: the inability to confront that which is.”

So here I am, typing daily hoping that it hits someone in the forehead, that it makes someone feel less alone. I’ve no website, product, or even a blog to push….just my thoughts and experiences. Keep the ones you like, give away the ones you don’t and share when you can-Shawn
