We all have stories and I'm finding it more and more important that we share them. There is so much "beating on" that happens in life -- tearing each other down -- being unsupportive -- being jealous. I think sharing stories gives others an opportunity to relate to you on a deeper level than the one you're probably currently on. Yes, it is wonderful that we can relate to fellow bloggers about fashion and the fact that we both have seven month old boys but imagine how much better it would be if we could confide in the fact that we've been emotionally abused, had extreme difficulties breastfeeding, or even something like feeling lonely because we don't have very many friends anymore.
I don't want to blog with restraints anymore. I'm ready to make true connections, new friends.
I've got a post that's been in my drafts for a few weeks now, I'll be posting it within the next couple of days. It makes me feel vulnerable just thinking about it. It's the right thing to do though.
