Seeping Dreams

why do I remain haunted by stupid shit that happened over a decade ago? These aren't even life threatening or harmful to anyone, but they were missed opportunities, places perhaps where my fears limited me, or I allowed them to. doomed to live an insignificant life. Why am I so obsessed with being famous? Would it mean I was worthy ? Is that it? Why cannot i just be happy with what I have, feel satisfied with what I have accomplished? What haunts is a feeling of not living up to my potential, a familiar experience to many I imagine. Dreams lost, drained away, seepage into the surrounding soil of our lives detritus.


  1. Oh, man, these are feelings I've struggled with as well - and they are tough. Self-criticism comes so easily for me, but acceptance is a completely different story. I just keep trying to remind myself to look forward and to make small steps toward goals, but I think what helps me the most is when I meet myself with compassion. Some days this is easier than others. Anyway, hope you find the self-acceptance you so deserve. It's never too late to take advantage of opportunities!

    1. Thank you worth, for your kindness and validation, it's always helpful to hear your words, I hope all is well for you, take care

  2. "A feeling of not living up to my potential." Now THERE'S a familiar litany!
    You're so awesome, you really are. I want to be JUST LIKE YOU, I really do.
    By the way, it was so lovely to see you. Dave thinks you're the nicest person he's ever met and that's high praise coming from him.
