29 january – change the world. #bloganuary

January 29:

How are you changing the world?


This is the third or fourth or fifth (?) prompt that has made me feel like total crap.

I’m not changing the world. I’m barely surviving. I’m trying to make it through the day. The hour. The minute. I’m trying not to use the word “try” anymore. I’m failing.

Changing the world. Ugh.

I don’t want to change the world because even though I think it sucks, I’m afraid I’d only make it worse. That seems to be my speciality. Ruining things. Fucking things up. Doing the wrong thing.

I don’t have anything to offer. Well, nothing good. I worry constantly about all the mistakes I’ve made (and keep making even though I don’t realize I keep making them until they’re made).

I wouldn’t dare try to change the world.

Seriously. Back away.

   
I’m probably jinxing these guys by holding them prisoner on my blog. 

p.s. — I thought this prompt was bad, but I’ve just seen tomorrow’s. God help me.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
