My blog has gone through a lot of changes over time. When I chose Bridging the Gap as one, in many many titles I’ve used, I was initially thinking about it in terms of art, and practice. The phrase actually stemmed from Ira Glass on storytelling:
Sine then it’s kinda grown into an inadvertent definition and a subconsciously accurate description of where I am. In many ways this year has been about bridging gaps – becoming more, learning more, doing things, overcoming fears, becoming more me…moving forward.
I feel like, in some ways I’m in a much different place than I was at this point last year, even the last six months – and in many ways I am. I’ve become less apologetic for my existence and don’t feel the need to explain the entire backstory behind my reactions since I’ve been on antidepressants – and also since then, I think I’ve been learning healthy thought patterns and feeling more. In a strange way, it all ties in and I’ve been bridging the gap to myself and all the places I want to be and the person I want to become.
