Paper

I've been feeling a bit better today and decided to get rid of some magazines. I guess I last did so 6 months ago, but I still had more magazines than I could imagine. It's amazing how much I spend on paper and for what? I can't really say they give me much. Sometimes I don't even read them, just browse through. But that doesn't stop me from snatching the latest issue when it hits the shelves.

I just read an article about this girl who is living with schizophrenia. She was talking about when and how schizophrenia came into her life and how she's been living with it. I found her story really inspiring. I find it admirable that people have the ability to tell their story in hopes of touching and helping others. I've been feeling sick lately. And everytime I feel a bit sick, I go into helplessness mode and I feel soo sorry for myself. I don't always realize that I do it. Reading the article made me realize that self pity don't do you any good. If anything it holds you down.

I guess that's why I keep buying magazines, for stories like these. I love reading other peoples stories and I often let myself get inspiried by them.
