I think it is time to clarify something.
This is my story. I think it is important to note “my” story and my perspective in the moment. My perspective will change at times once I have digested something and given it more thought. I will not however hold back from writing because I am afraid I will change my mind or find I am completely wrong. I believe that being afraid of admitting we were wrong can sometimes paralyze us and keep us from writing. I am not afraid to apologize if I am wrong or change my perspective. In fact writing is the process that helps me grow and change my perspective. It helps me to take a hard look in the mirror. Secondly I want to express what I am feeling when I am feeling it. I want to be raw and open when it is happening because I want others to understand that it is OK to feel. Do not be ashamed of all the natural human emotions that you have. I am doing my best to not be ashamed of what I am feeling. I will not tolerate shaming of myself or others when it comes to this. I may cuss and I may have pity parties sometimes. That is not something I want to do regularly but it is what it is. I will be writing about the past, the present and the future and how it relates to me right this moment. I will be sharing about pain sometimes. I may get angry and vent. The bottom line is this is my blog and I made it public for a reason. I am not going to hide or be ashamed of how I process things. Writing has saved my life.
