A Charles Bukowski quote

Something inspirational:

“Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.”

  1. I often feel like I live in another dimension as I can’t always relate to what most people complain about. We didn’t do most of the things that normal families do.

    We were kept very isolated and lived in places where it wasn’t safe to have friends, so it isn’t something that I miss right now.

    People can’t always comprehend it when I tell them what it was like, but I have siblings who can attest as to how truly terrible it was. We spent most of our time focusing on just surviving through the day.

    If I can save at least one other person from going through the kind of hell that we went through, it will all be worth it. I better set to writing my book!

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, you are slightly younger than me, but your comment reminds me of the time I asked to sleep at a friend’s house to be told I had a perfectly good bed at home.

      But I can’t help but think that how much of what we grew up with was the norm. Our siblings were supposed to be our friends and kicking a ball in the garden (back yard) was considered fun.

      I also know that sometimes it can be difficult to draw on anything positive, particularly when some of those experiences were negative or difficult, but our experiences can make us stronger, as long as we look for the lessons of what those experiences teach us.

      I hope you will set to writing about your experiences in a book!
