I feel like I'm reaching that point, and it's been a work of love for me since 2011 when I started blogging. Writing has always been my comfort, my peace, and my expression of who I am and who I want to become.
If you are still looking for your peace, don't give up. It's there. Whatever views you hold near and dear, find your true north. We're not all meant to agree 100% of the time, but it is important to learn how to express discontent with grace, intelligence, and dignity.
I strive to do that on this page and on my blog. Cognitive dissonance is expected with freedom of speech, but so is respect for differing view points as long as everyone's safety and well being are taken into consideration.
