A little insight on why I’ve started this blog.
“Blogging will lead to better life habits” – Some blogger guy.
Okay, alright, lets get started. I’ve been on this planet for twenty-odd years, and with that time one would usually acquire a good base of knowledge through personal experience and such (hopefully lol). I don’t know everything, but I think I know a lil bit. And I’m using this platform to share the bits I do know – my true thoughts. Not to convince anyone to join me and think the same, not for promotion or social media fame. Simply to just to get it out there, for anyone who cares to know, and for myself.
I have a social media account with a very small audience mostly just my closest friends, and I’ve used it to say whatever the heck I want. The unapologetic me. Recently, a very close friend of mine admitted that she looks up to me. I haven’t had anyone tell me that before. Like I’m no Princess of Wales or Mother Teresa, I’m just as lost as the next person. “ME?!!” I was honestly stunned. If you knew my friend you would get why I was shocked. She is a beautiful soul, tremendously intelligent, kind-hearted, musically gifted and hilarious. I thought how can someone who is already so great, look up to me? She went on to say that she loves my posts and the way I think. I felt so warm. I had selfishly posted my thoughts just to get things off my chest, and here was someone who received and understood what I felt and thought. She’s one of the few friends who have encouraged me to share my posts publicly.
I’ve wanted to share my views and summaries on my life experiences for a while. Sometimes we get caught in one way of thinking, and forget there are other options and views out there. Sometimes we get stuck and think that maybe we’re the only ones thinking what we’re thinking. Maybe someone could read what I have to say and be enlightened or feel a little less alone.
Anyway, so I’ve wanted to share but I didn’t want to compromise my personal space and privacy, which is why I’m not using my name here. I know that there is always an alternative opinion, people wont always perceive my words the way I mean for them to be, people will disagree, people might come for me because they disagree because some people are cray like that, and this is whats kept me from sharing on social media sites before.
But now I have this blog.
Yeah that’s pretty much it. This is why I’ve started this – peer pressure is a mf lol I’m just kidding, I’m here willingly.
