It’s easy for me to talk about what I deal with and what I feel. As long as I can remember I’ve always been like this.
The hard part about anyone writing about experiences in this way means we will become more vulnerable. I have more confidence now than I have ever had. Writing about my experiences and introducing myself to a life that has allowed this side of my emotions to develop has given me that confidence, but I still lack confidence around what other people will think.
It would be like walking away and questioning a conversation you had with someone because although you know you didn’t say anything out of turn, another person’s perception, may sometimes change the status quo. I’m sure this thought won’t be unique to me. It’s probably something we will all face in our lifetime, but writing about what most people will read opens the door to more vulnerability.
It’s not something quickly remedied either. We would have to change our thinking to do that. I know that with a little more confidence in myself I’ll eventually let go as I begin to ignore my vulnerable side.
