Hello Hello Everyone,
I reached an amazing milestone this weekend. This little blog found its 200th follower =) I really appreciate all the support and insight I’ve found from my Readers. For as much of myself as I put out into this space, I receive so much back as well. I love hearing from people who have questions, who want to say hello and let me know they’re reading along, who think my insight helpful enough to seek my advice, to those that share their stories and let me get to know them in some ways, for all those reasons and more you’ve made this little blog of mine so helpful for me and therefore helpful to others. I even appreciate the inconsiderate asshats out there that leave their little hateful comments. You’ll notice I leave those up usually because it’s important for me to remember that there are people out there that don’t understand, don’t want to understand, or can’t understand, and it motivates me a little more to try and explain.
So thank you for joining me, for visiting me, for stalking me and lurking in the shadows (and especially for putting up with my dry and sometimes bizarre sense of humor).
I hope you get as much out of this blog as I do.
I find it wonderful and crazy when people take the time to share their experiences with me. It’s so funny. I get lost in my own head, my own little world. I know I’m putting my darkest self-analysis out there for all to see, and yet, I’m always pleasantly surprised when people say to me, “I’ve been following you and reading your blog for months. I relate to…” this or to that. I know I talk a lot of very serious subjects, and it probably makes me a little unapproachable, but I’m always happy to hear from people. Even if you don’t have anything more to contribute than a ‘hello’. It reminds me that I am actually reaching out to people, which, as many of you well know, is important to those of us that feel so often alone.
In many ways those of you that have been with me for a very long time probably know me better than a lot of the people in my real life. If you ever ran into me out on the street though, you might never recognize me for the person I actually project. It’s often like leading a double life. One on the inside and one on the out. Having a place to just be me and let the inside have a voice has been a great experience (and will continue to be I’m sure).
I would keep up this blog on my own, but it’s you, my darling Readers, that have made this so enjoyable and even more insightful than I thought it could be. I really appreciate it.
Hugs and Love,
