There Are Nights

Disclaimer: I haven't really written any sad posts. Which is ironic, because I'm usually a sad sort of writer. I like sad topics and write sad lines and my characters are sad and boohoo. But this is my only sad post here so far. So, well, here it is.

And I didn't write it today, so don't go tweeting or emailing all crazy. I decided to post it on a different day than I wrote it so that it wouldn't be an overdramatic cry for help. Just a thought for out there- the bloggy world.

With Love, CG

There Are Nights

  1. I feel a little weird saying this, but I really liked that post. Raw and uncut. I of course hope that the feeling of loneliness/sadness passes, but the way you express it is magical. Sorry, if that comes off totally unempathetic (pretty sure that's not a word), but you know that I'm in your corner :)

    Another thing to think about: Sometimes we can do everything wrong and stuff turns out right, but we only feel it when it's the other way around.


  2. Like Ronnie I liked this post. And I can understand most of the feelings written.


  3. Thanks for sharing this. Please email me any time you want to chat.


  4. I loved this post. I feel like this all the time.

    Hi - I'm Carla. I found you first on Twitter, and now am reading through your blog.

    I'm all too familiar with the loneliness thoughts and feelings. Hope you are feeling better.

    Feel free to contact me anytime if you need to or want to chat.


  5. Hey CG. I may be different from some of your other fans because I do not have the same experience. I cannot understand the way someone with CF or another serious disease can. Also, I do not believe everything happens for a reason, but I do believe that there are many phenomenal people in the world.

    So next I must say: Gal, you can write. This piece kicks ass. It's absolutely honest, brutally sad, and then somehow the humanity in it - the loneliness described so aptly - makes it, ironically, universal.

    I just took a workshop called "Humor is the New Deep." Humor has helped me immeasurably. But it is good to put it aside now and then and just say what you gotta say.
