    "Right after she left was when my finances went to hell and I had to boot the roommies, so in the course of about two months, I had lost the love of my life, my best bros, and was broke. I went through a period of isolation and depression unlike anything I've ever experienced for about 8 months or so. It was weird, like I had lost my identity or something."

    Life...at least as I have experienced goes in cycles. Kind of like seasons.
    Sounds like you've gotten through the winter and it's early spring again.

    Winters are difficult but the leaves that cover the ground are making the soil fertile for new growth. I've been through three distinct "episodes" about nine years apart where everything I had known just vanishes.

    Like someone took the rug and just yanked it...all away.

    But I've got to say, as life renews...what happens next is always better than anything I could have hoped for or imagined. And there wouldn't have been that "open" space to receive a gift, if it hadn't been for loss.

    Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes and kind words of encouragement; I do feel like I'm on the upswing. This site and the concepts involved really make me feel like I'm understanding myself more already. I'll probably be fairly quiet around here for a while while I study and learn the common wisdom, but I look forward to hopefully being an enlightened contributor someday.

    Some lyrics I wrote recently:

    Inside this mind thoughts are rising
    This is a sign of a brand new day
    Without the weight that constricts me
    There's time so I can't let this get away

    Ascend to cleanse the soul
    Everyone must know

    It's not from the egg on my red face
    It's from the fear that I feel this way
    If I can break free or you will let me
    Everyone will see my insides on display

    Ascend to cleanse the soul
    Everyone must know the truth if we're going to be believed for our actions
    It's true without dare

    Beside yourself where the fire has come to bring back what almost slipped away from me
    And we're starting to lose control of it

    So you go back to the scene of the crime
    So surreal I've just gotta say goodbye
    And back at the scene of the crime
    I don't think it is really the last time
    I will be here
    I wiill see you in my new life in the sky

    Where we stay complete
    But for now, I'm alone in myself
    So I'll see you when my heart touches the sky
