She asked me how do I know what to write about…
It is simple really
I write about what has impacted me
What I have felt deeply
Sometimes it is bliss, joy and accomplishment
Sometimes it is pain, heartbreak and embarrassment
I am all about what “gets in”
I am all about the experiences that touch our sincerity
And remind us of our humanity
I am all about feeling fully
If we really felt others and ourselves we would never hurt one another
We have to be cut off to intentionally cause pain
We have to disconnect to assault, abuse and violate
I know because I have been attacked
And I have attacked
And each and every time I do
I remember after that I am you
And the pain of knowing I lost myself and hurt you
It is this remembering I write about
Through writing and sharing I am remembering to remember
One of the greatest compliments a friend paid me was, “Whenever I see your posts, even if I don’t like them or agree with them, I know I am going to feel something”
And frankly, while I would prefer to be adored
If disappointment or disgust is what I elicit
I am just glad I got you feeling
Because from there we can become whole
And we can know, we are connected
We are not alone
And it is all about helping each other come home

❤ Emily Joy Rosen
