Time to talk about life.
Some of you may have noticed that my obsession with Trek and other bits of fandom has calmed down significantly in the past couple of months. I've been taking some time to focus on things that I've neglected due to my obsessions, namely my social life and my growth as a human being.
Moderation and I have never been friends when it comes to addictions and obsessions. Never worked with alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, or junk food. For most things, it's all or nothing for this guy.
But some things I will have to learn to moderate, lest I become a one-dimensional or incomplete version of my true self. I don't want to live in a fanboy fantasy, nor do I want to live a life void of those silly things I love (and have made a career out of). I have to get back in touch with the more well-rounded Donny I once was. Separating myself from the obsessions for a bit and focusing on me and those dear people close to me is necessary to achieve a balance.
Life is all about growth, and stagnation equals death. Self-reflection, in the wake of a trying time, has allowed me to feel some feels, good and bad, that I didn't allow myself access to for a while.
