A dear friend of mine Krista wrote in her blog today something that struck a cord with me. She said, "I show more emotion HERE and to those who know me online then to those who only know me IRL." I have had this thought a few times and wanted to chat about it for a second.
My blog is all over the place. I'm motivated and actually living my life one day, and the next I'm crush and my heart aches from it all. I get that, but that is just the way it is around these IF parts. I just have to try and deal with all of the ups and downs. Part of the way I do that is my wordvomit here. Because IRL? Yeah, no dice. About 10 people, include J and I, know what is happening. So all of my conversations and silly things like Facebook status updates are about things that, in comparison, mean nothing to me. Most times I can't even think of what I possibly could say, so I don't.
I'm sure Krista and I aren't alone in this. How do I fix it? When do I bare all? Or do I ever? If they ask, do I tell? Or do I avoid it and change the subject? I'm sure my friends that know ask themselves that same question, Do I ask her about it? Just add those to the list of questions I don't have answers for.
