I have a lot of good stuff to blog about! Unfortunately, I let it pile up too high, way too high, and then my perfectionist needs kicked in and I couldn’t write because there were too many posts for me to feel they could be good enough. New strategy… let’s try writing snippets until I can get back into the swing of things. Truly, I am not good with discipline… or self-discipline. (Note to self: Stop criticizing you!) However, if this blog is going to survive, I think I need to post on a schedule of at least once per week. (more…)
Yesterday I realized that August 28th, 2015 was the 2nd anniversary of the day I left Israel to be with the narcissist. It has been two years since I left Israel. Wow, I can’t believe it. It’s been a terrible time for me, really crappy, but it feels like a rough month – not two years! I remember everything so vividly. I was living in my rental apartment in Safed. I was on the top floor and my bedroom window looked out upon the moon. Every night, I used to lie in bed, window completely ajar, no screens, feel the breeze (more…)
The new job is good. The things I was afraid of turned out to be non-existent. For example, I worried that I wouldn’t get breaks, then I would get too hungry, and screech at a customer – but nobody oversees my breaks. I can take them whenever I want. I did notice that no-one else took a proper break, in the breakroom, for 30 minutes straight – but I sure as hell will be. (PS. There is no hell.)

I’m cleaning off my desk today (well, maybe a corner of it) and I’ve decided to post some of the half-finished posts I have lying around. Being a Perfectionist, no… a Grand Perfectionist, I tend to hold onto projects until I can get them to be just right (AKA brilliant). Usually, it’s a dysfunctional system that works – but when my self-esteem is low, the whole machine breaks down, I freeze, and no writing gets done. Given that writing is my only Therapy, this stalling is dangerous for me. I can spiral into depression or daydreaming. Currently, I have been watching (more…)
