Have you ever had an emotional hangover?
You share something really personal and the next day you think:
“Why did I do that?!? I should’ve kept my mouth shut.”
I’m a pretty private person, which might seem like a strange statement since I blog every day. We share 200-300 words a day, right? Daily blogging has been a stretching experience for me.
Allowing people into my head space every single day is scary. I’m like a Puritan when it comes to my emotions. If my ankles are showing that’s just too much!
There have been many times I’ve shared with you guys and felt sick to my stomach.
“Did I say too much? What did I just do?”
I only bring this up now because I’m working on a project with my dad and stepmom. You’ll get to hear more about my reconciliation journey. For those who are unfamiliar with my story, this series would be a good one to follow. (And that’s all I’m going to say for now.)
This project will be a BIG stretch for me…
I need to find a nice rock to rent and a stash of brown paper bags.
I realize this post is a bit melodramatic. (Aren’t hyperboles fun?)
No one likes vulnerability, but we all crave it. We’re constantly watching and testing those around us to see if they’re genuine.
And yet, many of us are so scared to share.
Dear friend, I’m right there with you!
Fight the urge to hide, okay?
Hiding helps no one.
Find an outlet to share your gifts and stories with others.
Know that I’m here to help you however I can.
