They say that a smile is the shortest distance between two people. But a laugh is even shorter!
When I started this blog, and pivoted it towards America, in the back of my mind, I decided not to hit at President Trump's political opponents...well, not much.
But if they set it up on a tee, well, I just gotta take a swing at it!
Frankly, I almost feel sorry for Joe Biden, whom The Washington Post named "The Lamborghini of gaffes" as he's clearly struggling on the campaign trail. I say "almost" because my empathy goes down to zero after seeing so many videos of him publicly molesting young girls on camera.
That's when the gloves came off. But I don't need to say a word. Joe does the job for me. Here for your reading enjoyment are five of Joe Biden's best gaffes.
If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times:
The readers of
Narcissism Meets Normalcy
are the BEST!
Even though the fate of the PsychCentral blogs, including Narcissism Meets Normalcy, is iffy since the site was sold last week, that's no reason you and I can't continue to laugh and cry, learn and grow together.
Yesterday, after dribbling tears around the house when I learned that NmN was in jeopardy, I woke up excited. Yes, actually excited! NmN started out very gritty, dark and hurt in 2016. Lots of anger. You (and Michael!) stuck with me through those gloomy, ugly days and now I want to write a happier blog for all of us.
Yes, we'll still talk about narcissism but from a solid place of understanding and healing...maybe even forgiveness!?! Best of all, we'll look for the happiness in life. Like Auntie Mame says, "Life is a feast and most poor SOBs are starving to death." We don't want to be like that. We want to do that Thoreau thing and suck all the marrow and goodness out of life.
Even in the worst of times, things can get worse. That's when you realize just how blessed you are.
My pay for writing NmN allowed us to eat. That's right, my whole paycheck went for groceries, pet food, cleaning products...even a few clothes. I've gotten rather accustomed to eating. ;)
Beyond Narcs...Get Happy has no sponsors or advertisement. It relies 100% on you, the reader, for support. In five years of NmN, when the chips were done, you always came through to get us through our rough patches. Michael and I have always been so grateful for your support. If you can see your way clear, your donations will be most welcome. Click here to see the new GoFundMe.
I'd like to keep in touch so please subscribe to receive an email whenever I post new content...probably 1-2 times per week, as usual. I'll be pretty busy pursuing new venues for income, and hopefully re-starting my Reluctant Cook blog too but I won't forget to write! Any leads on new venues for writing, editing, etc. would be appreciated. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for five wonderful years together communicating through Narcissism Meets Normalcy. I hope reading it has blessed you as much as writing it has changed me.
I look forward to journeying through life with you for all the years to come.
Lenora, Writer of Narcissism
