I feel a bit conflicted about my last post. It was good to finally say it all out loud but then there is the judgement that comes with it.
People always say it’s good to talk but there are things people don’t want to listen to. I think disclosing a part of ourselves can be really frightening, and probably why people don’t speak up. We are not always sure of the reaction we will get from people and once something is said, you can’t unsay it.
I write this anonymously because I couldn’t imagine saying these things out loud to a person who is in my life. I don’t want to alter the relationships that I have with people.
My last post has caused judgment but I would sooner take it from people who I don’t know instead of the people that do matter to me.
