Mental Hygiene

What’s messier right now — your bedroom or you computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state

…my head. Always been. Combination of background, upbringing, wrong genes and life experience make it that way. My head is a dark labyrinth inhabited by ghosts and other night creatures fighting for attention. Each of them has their own complex story to tell. The walls are adorned with fresh and old wounds still bleeding. Some of them have healed on the surface but soft to the touch and bleeds when push harder. Cold and dark, slippery and confusing; an unwelcoming place littered with skeletons, a prison without windows, or doors. A personal version of a city that never sleeps. My very own Hotel California. That’s the state of my head. Is it messy? Tell me…

  1. If it is possible to describe a place that is dark and foreboding but in a beautiful way, I think you have done so. “Dark labyrinth”, “littered with skeletons”, “wounds still bleeding.” Hard words and it tears me up as a reader knowing these are the things in your head, but difficult as it is, your writing is always honest and very real.

      1. But it is true. If I view it purely from a blogging standpoint, you are a good writer. If I view it purely from being a fellow human being, you are a good writer. The end 🙂

  2. It will always be what you believe it to be. We manifest our own reality. Is my bedroom “messy”, or my computer? Well mine are both a little “lived in”. As for my head? It is as clear as a bell.

    Luckily, I have a few ghosts but that’s what they are. They come and go at my behest, not the other way round.

    Cheers Jamie.

      1. First you have to try. It’s not a theory. Life is about suffering. Everyone suffers. In different ways. It is over-coming suffering, which is the goal. The four noble truths and the eightfold path. As long as any person does not try, it is a theory. When we try and it starts to manifest a result? … Theory proven. Cheers!
