Negetive Energy

In Negative Energy, Arash is completely against having his friend’s a.a sponsee Jack hang out with them temporarily which sparks this monologue.

Arash: THIS, it’s always something. Whenever I come home from work you have some sort of issue going on and I can’t deal with it. I need my space and I need my peace. You make everything such a big deal and it’s becoming too much. It overwhelms me and I end up feeling depressed and angry and I don’t want to feel that way. I’m not that way. I’m more chilled and optimistic and you drag me down to the pits of hell and whenever I try to bring you some light you wrestle with me for hours, until finally, finally you are in a better mood but by then I’m exhausted and have no strength to do anything for myself that pleases me. I have to work up the positive energy inside myself to get out of whatever crappy state of mind you put me in to begin with. I don’t want to do this anymore.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
