Why I Write

I love writing because it allows me to get out of my own head for a while. It allows me to delve into someone else’s life, someone else’s problems. It allows me to escape reality and be where I want to be.

My reality isn’t always good. I don’t like being where I am because there is too much fighting, too much chaos, too much negativity. It truly is a wonder why everyone is surprised I am a negative person. I’ve been around it all my life, it’s all I know. I am trying to change, and I have, quite a bit. But no one seems to really register that fact. I have been doing a great job in becoming more positive, more outgoing, more involved. But no one sees that. All they seem to see are the mistakes, the negativity, the errors.

So why wouldn’t I want to be somewhere else? Somewhere I am constantly in control of. Sure, the people and situations aren’t exactly real, but they allow me to get through reality a hell of a lot better.

  1. I have seen you make changes Emilou. And you make me proud that despite your situation with the home life being disappointing, you are still strong enough to smile. I love you Emilou, every single piece of you because that all makes you who you are. Even the negative aspects, you are still my Emilouise and you always manage to come through.
    Love, NayNay/Fruit Monkey
