I signed up to do a blog a few months ago, but never actually posted anything. I started this up thinking that I could talk about some of my feelings and thoughts, but I’m finding this hard to do. I keep wondering to myself, what would people think of me if I bear myself. Worse yet, what if it is someone that I work with that reads this? My hands are shaking just trying to write this!

The inspiration for this came from watching people with social anxiety disorder (SAD) talking about their experiences on YouTube. I can’t stand having pictures taken of me or being video tapped, let alone talking about a mental condition that I have. I thought that I could write about it instead, but I am wrong, I am avoiding doing what I want to do with this blog. To talk not only about my thoughts on culture, society or politics, but to talk about my life, my feelings, my personal thoughts.

They say that the best way to overcome a fear is to face that fear.  I have blogged before in the past, but never actually about myself.

  • It’s a brave step, and I look forward to reading more from you.

  • Everyone is so supportive here on word press! I too have social anxiety and I totally understand what you mean about opening up. It’s hard for me to open up to people in person, let alone to write about it, but in time I found it very zen and I hope you will too! I hope to come back and read more of your posts 🙂

    Love your blog! It is VERY hard to write about our personal feelings and put ourselves out there, open to ridicule and rebuff from others. But, keep posting!

    • Thanks for the kind words!
