Hi I'm PG and I am a blogger.

HI PG!

It's been three months since my last post. And even that was just a lame link to an Easter like song.

*APPLAUSE*  GOOD FOR YOU FOR BEING REAL!

I haven't blogged here because my life has been hard.

AWWWWW. .....YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN HARD? BULLSHIT, YOU DON'T LIVE IN THE SUDAN SO WHAT'S YOUR  BEEF?......HEY WHINER, YOU'VE GOT A PLACE TO LIVE AND A CAR......

Hard is relative, I know. But for me it's been hard.

YEAH. IT'S HARD FOR EVERYBODY. JOIN THE CLUB.

I'm just trying to tell you why --

LIKE WE GIVE A F**K. HAVE YOU BEEN BEATEN NEAR TO DEATH?

No, but--

DO YOU LIVE ON THE STREETS?

You know I don't, but---

YOU STILL HAVE YOUR SON WITH YOU?

Thank goodness, yes, but---

ALL THESE "BUT'S". WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU, A MOTORBOAT?? BUT BUT BUT.....

.......and she slinks quietly to her seat, shutting up and sucking it up. Because she is a good girl.

I hear you. Sometimes I just want to wallow, and sometimes I get tired of the mud puddle.

It is relative. And your life has been hard, no job complicates everything. I hope something comes along soon!

That was so real and so damn good..... I'm praying you into a job....

I've been learning about this, PG. It's called comparative suffering and in this case you are minimizing your suffering by comparing it you the suffering of others. It is YOUR suffering, and it HURTS and should not be minimized.

Nor, probably, should it be mountainized either, I would think (but here I deviate from the official lesson plan of what I have been learning). As with so many things, balance is the key.

Seriously, I am sorry you are suffering in this way. I'm sorry you are hurting. I am sure it is tough. I hope and pray that somehow a job will come to you...

Loved this post. Funny. And ow.

Love the comments, too - especially Annie's.

Learning so much. Keep writing...

spookyrach said...

such a great comment, annie. seriously.

wish I had something to offer other than commiseration.


and, just for the record, that picture scares the heck outta me! :)

Hot Cup Lutheran said...

i agree with annie... don't minimize your hurt. i'm guessing your wicked humor has helped you along these hard times... but hurt is hurt... and ya hurt...

we'll listen.

Well, thanks you guys. Rach - I rather like that picture because it does look like me as a kid. And I did scare the living poo out of folks.

My point, if there was one, is that minimizing happens out in the world. There is no place in the world for personal hurt (at least in my case) for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with me. It goes like this, "You have (insert list of material objects here), so shut up" "You're an unmarried female who has a place to live and a car, so shut up" etc. etc. And no one, not even so-called friends, have the slightest interest in helping/supporting/listening/caring about anything I might perceive is hurting/painful/fecking hard. Granted, they could be tired of listening to crap, especially when there is so much of it going on in the world. And I can appreciate that.

The bottom line - there is no minimizing or mountainizing, because there is no place interested in hearing this (well, except you guys, but trust me, you'd get sick of it too. It's just gone on and on and I myself am tired of hearing about it) - Out here, in the wild wild west, I is all on my own.

Hoping the alien in the jar will fetch a week's worth of food anyway.

I know this was for fun, but just for the record, I don't think only people without food have the right to complain. You can cry out, too, and it still counts.

Brittany said...

There is crap going on the world...doesn't make your crap any less real. Just sayin'. Glad to "hear" you. I will listen anytime.
