I’ve been feeling quite conflicted lately about the process of blogging. I think it’s great that writers can write about their truth. Readers then can see themselves in others and not feel alone, or just get lost in another’s story.
Lately I have been feeling as though some things shouldn’t be shared. Not so much shouldn’t but for me personally I feel I need to keep a part of my life just for me.
I felt as though I had revealed too much of myself. One of the reasons I began blogging was so that I would feel comfortable writing and expressing my feelings. However I have discovered I have a limit.
I shared a very personal story, something I’m not exactly proud of, it demonstrated by vulnerability and humanity. However I could possibly have shown this without revealing every inch of me.
I have huge respect for those people who can reveal everything. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m not there yet or whether I’m not comfortable with certain things being out there for anyone to find.
When I blog I still seek to write truthfully and if I write a personal story it will be completely me and true. However I may keep some stories to myself.
Until next time,
