STRIPPER’S ADVICE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH DEPRESSION 

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2019 by tiltdiary

She had been depressed for over two years now and tired of herself not getting off her feet. She had come up with a plan, “I need to do something for myself, spend some money on me. Get a new haircut, maybe I’ll even invest into hair extensions. I should also get a brand new wardrobe, and maybe new furniture. Something drastic to make a change.” I looked at her and couldn’t help but say, “While buying new shit might be a diversion for a day or two. While buying a new look, even new furniture might feel like a change, it’s not going to change how you truly feel inside. The only way to make a difference within you, give your life purpose and meaning, is to help someone else. Save a life (rescue a pet), help children or elderly, bring meaning into your life by making your actions mean the world to others … that’s the only way how you can make your life count and how you can overcome depression. Buying shit will just make you have to worry more about your silly posessions while crying over the money you spent on useless crap.”

WHAT’S REAL AND WHAT’S STAGED?

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2019 by tiltdiary

Often times, I feel as if life is a screenplay that is played out in front of you while you are participating and — if you are self-aware enough — you are even watching yourself as everything is happening. Then you have to make a decision in regards to your reactions. Is it a documentary, thriller, murder mystery, a drama, a comedy, or you can even decide whether you’re participating in your own sitcom? Often, it literally feels as if most of us are wired to go one way or the other. Some of us watch and are amused, others feel intrigued, and it seems suspenseful, some actively pursue and participate in the murder mystery or thriller, others fall victim to it, some cannot stop laughing and others cannot stop suffering. It feels as if it’s all up to you how you decide to see it, participate, or not participate and just watch. Is everything in life staged or is it real?

MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS IN THE STRIP CLUB

Posted in Customers with tags , , , , , on December 26, 2018 by tiltdiary

We had talked about life and death, and I said, “I find life very cruel.” His response revealed a deep truth and put my bitterness into a different perspective, “Life is actually pretty much okay. People are cruel. Life takes its course, but people make it terrible. Nature goes its way.”

INSIGNIFICANT REJECTION

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , on November 24, 2018 by tiltdiary

Most people’s biggest fear is rejection, and often, they avoid life in order to escape rejection. But in the strip club rejection is so common that it becomes insignificant. You might try starting a conversation with a guy and he might just turn his back on you or find a lame excuse why he doesn’t want to talk to you. Two hours later, you catch him again at the bar, and you might become his favorite girl, and he might make your night. Rejection cannot dictate your life. Not inside nor outside the club, because rejection is subjective and situational, and therefore insignificant.

PRAY PRETTY

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , , , on September 10, 2018 by tiltdiary

I fall on my knees
You’re holding those keys
To my future
Healing old wounds with your soothing sutures
Feeling your exhale behind my calves
Unfolding the held back laughs
Wiping clean the painful slate
Finally I see the fruit filled plate
Right in front of me it is
Alive like the water full of fish
Allowing me to have a wish
Now I can taste life’s tasty dish
