A Single Acrostic - An Image Shot of a Poem I posted on "My Alter Ego"

I actually wrote this sometime between 2006 and 2007, and it used to be on the old MSN Spaces that's no longer available. Then, I moved it to My Alter Ego in a post dated for 2011. 

I wrote it to inspire single people who haven't found "the one" yet or if they have cannot be with that person right now. (I found out it does happen sometimes -- never understood why God doesn't just allow people to be together if they're meant to be, but I guess that's just the way it is so I hear!)

Now, I present to you my "S.I.N.G.L.E. Acrostic"

More About Me

I'm not exactly single right now. However, I've lived the single life about 20 years and have never been married. I started freelance writing since 2005, and I've been full time since about 2006. I first created "My Alter Ego" circa 2006/2007, but it used to be under the name of "J.B.'s Epic Life Journey" then I later changed the name and moved all my general diary posts to a new site. 

Now, My Alter Ego is becoming a companion blog to my private G+ and Facebook Sexual Abuse Support groups I just started about a month ago. I also run a You Have Issues self-help blog covering a multitude of topics. All my sites contain updated entries that formerly were posted elsehwere, but they also have some new content on them.

By the way, have I arrived you might ask?

To be honest, this past year has been one of the darkest years of my life. I had a fun 40th birthday, but other than that it was hard. My dad committed suicide in April of 2014. For about a year and a half preceding up to that, I anticipated possibly having to take frequent trips to see my half-sisters who may end up permanently living four hours away from me. 

My dad and my unfortunately  had a bittersweet ending before he decided to tie an extension cord around his neck and hang himself.  So, why do I try to "preach" at others?

Well, first of all, I wouldn't call it "preaching" because I don't always quote the Bible when I'm writing my articles. Secondly, I'm tapping into all the knowledge I have and using my writing to inspire myself as well as others. 

I know the self-help content I've read over the past 20 years has helped me. Most of it dealt with how to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Whether it be a spiritual approach like depicted in "Battlefield of the Mind"or a more practical approach like the one depicted in"Telling Yourself the Truth"the content has helped me out of many bouts of depression.
