This has been a good trip for me. I have been in California for the last week or so. It’s a nice change from the East Coast. Just being away for a while has given me a chance to clear my head. To think about life, to figure out I need to deal with my problems, and to even forgive my parents for any grudges I’ve been holding on to.
I feel optimistic. I feel refreshed. I still have another week out here.
I was talking to my best friend today. We grew up with similar problems. He was making all the same complaints we both usually agree to. Mostly how our parents did a shitty job raising us, problems with society, criticisms of religion/politics, etc. That’s when it hit me. Just let it go. Let all the problems go. I told him that and he said he couldn’t. I can. So I am. I am going to really try to let it all go. Starting now.
