Hello all!! Today is day 2 of the SITS Girls Back To Blogging Challenge. Today’s assignment is to re-upload a post we wished more people had paid attention to. The post I have chosen (cause I really don’t have a lot to choose from at this point) is:
I felt really alone when I wrote this. I was having a really down day, total pity party. I wrote this post to let go some of the loneliness I was feeling. I really expected people to read it and tell me they had been there or they understood what I was going through. I really got no response at all and that is the opposite of what I expected. Now, that did not make me feel worse or more alone, but did make me wonder how many people are afraid to share their experiences. I did not mention my “friend’s” name in my post, but anyone who knows me well enough in my personal life knows exactly who I am talking about. I didn’t post the link on Facebook (I didn’t have a fan page back then) because I didn’t want it to get back to this person. Why I was worried about that, I don’t know. She is the one who walked away, not me. I am allowed to have these feelings and I am allowed to express them in a venue where I feel safe, loved and not judged.
I hope that there are people out there who can relate and have been there, or possibly even someone out there who just needs to read this so that they, too, can see they are not alone in this big world.
I would also like to thank the sponsors of the SITS Girls Challenge, Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath & Florida Builder Appliances for making this possible. Winning Thelma & Louise wouldn’t be so bad either, right?!? Read about them at Electrolux.
