Just a blog

Game? This wasn't meant to be a game. NEVER.

Blog? This wasn't meant to be a blog. NEVER.
--Tim Id

It is easy for someone who doesn't blog to marginalize the importance of a blog. I sense more often then not, those who blog don't think they are just blogs. They can be many different things: therapy, a pressure valve, a sanctuary or just a record that we existed.

There I go again, worrying about my existence versus accepting that I exist and trying to make the best of it. Except, I believe that understanding ourselves helps us understand others. Understanding yourself can help you be a better self and better able to help others.

But this could all just be a rationalization for being egotistical. It is pointless anyway. You can't change a person's mind if they truly believe something. You can only sway someone who is unsure of their position. It is why people have such polarized belief systems. They are generally stuck in black or white. And believing only in black or white, they can only hear black or white point of views that support their own. Every thing else is strange.

But then again, this is just a blog.
