Ever sat and wrote a great post but was hesitant to publish it? Yeah, that is where I am with one of my post. Honestly, it’s not just one post, there are more post then I can probably count that I haven’t even written that I want to. There is a part of me that wants to post it but I just know with my whole being it would ruin certain relationships with people and possibly people that I hold near and dear.
OK, I won’t say ruin but hurt them in some way, shape, or form. It won’t break any trust but opening my mind to the world and them being a part of it could make things difficult.
I don’t do well with difficult!
The other day when writing my post about The Passport Program (check it out) a lady asked me what I was writing. I told her that I was writing for my blog. Without me saying anything else she said that, “this is like an outlet for you”. I told her she was absolutely correct. She mentioned to me that she could tell. I’m not totally sure how she could tell but I didn’t ask her to elaborate either.
I sit and think to myself, why should I feel like I can’t post it—it’s just my feelings. My blog is my platform to do just that, express myself without fear of judgment. Without fear of hurting someone or them feeling sensitive. Should that really be my reason for not posting? That’s like allowing someone or people to hold me back from being the best me that I can be.
If a complete stranger in the library can recognize something like that about something I’m doing, my writing, why wouldn’t others see it the same way? Shouldn’t they?
