I've received a lot of feedback regarding my honesty and openess in my blogs. Some people think its TMI, while others find it helpful to themselves.
Quite honestly journaling has alway been a part of my life, and to me blogging is like the 2000's version of writing in a diary. i often reread old posts and reflect on them, or think of how my views have changed since then.
But if you know me, then you know that I'm a pretty open person. I've discussed my issues with my marriage; My fears about pregnancy and motherhood; My own internal struggles, whether it be weight loss, depression/anxiety, or even self esteem. Infact I tend to talk too much, which is something that I am working on.
Verbalizing and writing is HOW I COPE. Infact its alot more about me processesing my thoughts by hearing them outloud or rereading them, than it is about receiving feedback. And while i do read the feedback and appreciate it, that is not my purpose here.
My thought is, I often feel like i'm the only one going through trials and everyone else's life is perfec; its part of that daily internal struggle of why me vs. why not me? So if I feel that way, maybe someone else does too.
SN:Honestly, there have been quiet a few blogs that i never published, because they were just too personal
