I discovered that I can be funny when I write. I can embarrass myself without feeling ashamed. I have a voice and people want to listen. I’m not afraid when I write. I have confidence. I can be honest. I bet you the people who read my blog know me better than those who know me since I was a baby.
I have trouble opening up. When I do, people compare it with themselves or their situation, trying to make me feel better. But it NEVER works that way. If there’s one thing you should know about me, I’m a big believer in the concept that an ant has its own problems, and an elephant has its own problems. Never compare them. So writing helps. I voice it out, and it almost instantly makes me feel better.
