DITCH THE POST AND PUNCH SOMEONE.

Monday, September 17, 2018


We're writing blogs and not enough people are getting punched. So if you need to punch someone. Punch them."-words from a random podcast

I know this sounds slightly violent but these words get straight to the point. Hear me out!

I was listening to a podcast late last night before bed when I heard this line. That's the G rated version of what was being said but it got my attention. The ladies in this Podcast mentioned blogging which totally woke my mind up because how often is blogging mentioned? AND they mentioned punching someone which is even more interesting. These couple of lines caught my attention so much I had to rewind the Podcast and listen to the lines again and again. Then I wrote them down:
We're writing blogs and not enough people are getting punched. So if you need to punch someone. Punch them.
I thought about these lines for a while and what I got out of them is a message that I am so pleased to have discovered. 

As a blogger, I tend to write about my feelings. The feelings I write about are usually caused by the things going on in my mind, in my life or by the people I'm around. I've written a couple of blog posts with certain people in mind to channel my feelings. These posts are vague and written in broad terms and the purpose of these posts is to sway my feelings towards neutral, avoid confrontation, and then move on. Sound familiar?

I've started writing blog posts instead of confronting the situation at hand. Others are starting to open blogs and write posts about traumatic experiences to share what's going on and figure out how they feel. But this little quote I came across is right. Sometimes we need to "punch" someone and move on. Sometimes others need to be confronted about what they did to hurt you in order for you to move on. Forget writing the ranty blog post that will minimize some of your feelings and instead get those feelings out of your system and do something about it!

These words struck me as motivational and spoke to me as a reminder to stop hiding behind my blog. I need to do what I need to do to move on and sometimes the blog posts aren't the best way to go.

It was around 11pm when my mind was on fire with a realization about something I had been doing since I started blogging. I knew I needed to keep this quote and these thoughts on record and my blog are where they belong.

What are your thoughts on this?
Is there anyone or anything you need to "punch"?

  2. Yes! I agree, more people need to deal with things. Myself included, writing posts doesn't solve anything.

  6. In highschool, I used to write blog posts about people who negatively affected me but they ended up using it against me to read my mind. It’s a lesson I’ll never forget. I’ve learned to confront the situation in as soon as I can and that’s been helping me since.

  7. For a moment, I thought you were going to talk about the struggles of blogging and how when we become frustrated, we should punch someone. o.O

    But this is definitely something I never really thought of. Thank you for sharing this. <3

    1. That's a real feeling I have when I'm trying to write a post sometimes. But nope, I'm taking about taking action and what not(: glad to shine down light.

  8. Okay, this is a good point, speaking of punching metaphorically of course. I don't tend to use my blog for this, but my journal gets its fair share, haha, and that might not actually be the healthiest thing. Thanks for sharing!

    1. No haha you don't do that on your blog :) Yes, I thought about that as well when I was writing this post! How I do that A LOT in my journal. But sometimes you need those things out of your system.

  9. Um this is so true!!!!!!!! Sometimes it's easy to rant and forget that we should actually do something to solve the issue. It's like saying, "our thoughts and prayers are with so and so" and while that is lovely and God can help them, isn't it also our job to do something as well as pray? Sometimes aren't we the answer for what we're praying for?
    Great post!

    1. ISN'T IT? I am so thankful you have reminded me of that. I do think along with prayer comes an action as well. Being proactive makes the difference. I am happy to see you could relate this to faith <3 Thanks for reading.
