How many times have you been going through something, feeling like you are the only one going through it? Or like no one else would understand what you’re going through? Perhaps you feel shame or embarrassment expressing your feelings, your fears, or even your dreams. You feel like you can’t talk to anyone for fear of being judged or letting down your guard. Well I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone.
Someone else is going through what you are going through. Someone out there is feeling the the exact same way. I realized this when I came across an anonymous site where woman and some men were sharing so much more than they ever would had their names been attached. They sought answers and comfort and understanding. They discussed fears and stigmas. And they supported each other. It is a sad thing that we cant do these things out in the open, but I’m glad these places exist. We need ways to connect, if even anonymously.
This blog will be to remind ourselves that someone is always out there who supports you, who has been through it, who is going through it. I want this to become a safe place to discuss anything and everything. Sometimes the ideas will come from my personal stories, stories from friends, but also stories from you. Eventually I’d like to move to a podcast format for some real and authentic interaction. Feel free to comment with your ideas and thoughts. This blog is for me to get through some tough things as well and heal and even though technically its mine I want it to be ours and one where we can help each other. Anything shared with me will be kept anonymous. I do not claim to be an expert or doctor, but a woman who has felt alone and feels alone and who realizes she needs people and people need people. I volunteer to be your person as much as I can possibly be through these words.
