Let it Scare You Just a Little Bit
The truth, I always held back. It may not have seemed that way to a reeling audience watching as my mind and my first marriage unraveled. I did it publicly and then it died, my blog, not me. I thrived. The safety of pulling my life back into a semblance of privacy was like pulling weeds away from a garden plant. I got sun and water and air and in that space and nourishment I could grow into a better person, a person healed.
Now the writing, it calls me to risk again. Peeling back the layers of myself for public consumption is aversion therapy for the people-pleaser that resides within. My one goal, to be courageous and try to write in a way that scares me a little.
