Life is a permanent fight for survival. That applies to plants. It applies to humans. It applies to me. It probably applies to you.
For me it’s a fight on many fronts

It’s never ending. As much as you try you can never apparently win. Often your best hope is to just keep in the game. Survive another day.
But the key is to try and talk. Sometimes that is easier said that done. It is so easy for someone to get lost. Cut adrift from society. Friends drop off the radar. Those you love and depend upon are taken from you. That’s when talking becomes a rarity. A quick chat with the postman the closest you get to outside world discourse. It just isn’t enough.
But thankfully we have another weapon available to us. Blogging…. It opens up a new way to talk. To listen. To seek solace. To meet new friends. To feel connected again. To weep. To get angry. To think. Maybe even to laugh.
It’s not for everyone. You sometimes hear the criticism. You may get the occasional critical email.
So to those who accuse some of us of just being attention seekers. Wallowing in our own self importance. Inflating our egos. Maybe you are right, maybe your wrong. But frankly I don’t give a fig. I have more important fights to pursue and for me blogging is now a vital part of my defence system. It helps to prevent me veering towards some very dark places.
Yes it’s a fight but a fight better shared.
