tired of baggage....


What is baggage? In my interpretation, baggage is experiences, lessons, issues, etc. that people carry over from relationships or events that have occurred in one's life. Sometimes the baggage is light. Sometimes people are hauling around jumbo suitcases of issues. Apparently a lot of people I meet and deal with carry around a substantial amount of baggage. While I know people have issues, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the amount of baggage people I meet are carrying. I was told that everyone has baggage. Why? "Who are you carrying all those bricks for anyway?"

Really, who are you carrying all those bags for? What is the point? All baggage does is weigh you down. If you don't find a better way to tote around your life's experiences you will break your back. I am a firm believer in taking all the experiences you have had in your life and taking what you've learned from them to progress and grow. But you have to learn from them. Assimilate the experiences into who you are and how you live. Not just carry them around.

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't believe EVERYONE has baggage. May I'm too logical and I've been told there is no logic to emotions (which I think is crap). Maybe I'm just naive. Maybe I just haven't lived enough, or done enough. But what I do know is that your baggage starts to wear on those around you. Figure out how to carry your own shit. I'm tired.

As someone who carries a good bit of baggage I hear what you're saying. Keep that crap to yourself or let it go. At least most of the time I don't talk about my crap so it's not like it's inconveniencing anyone, it just makes me a bitch... and well let's be honest, if that prevents annoying people from talking to me, then I think all that baggage is probably doing it's job. Ha ha!

Lawrenorder....poor child, you need a hobby. That's a better alternative than to bottle up like that. You need to talk/vent, just in moderation.
