As I curled up on my couch wrapped in a blanket trying to get rid of the winter chills, I came across this site as I was looking for some way to express myself. I am a very private person and often suffer in silence. I am still debating if I should post public or keep my thoughts to myself. I find that writing to be very therapeutic. I have discovered that when friends and family ask how you are, they aren’t really interested in getting into a discussion, so I smile and say, “things are great” when really all I want to do is break down. most days are great but some days…….not so much. I think today I will leave my comfort zone and post public. Maybe it will help others see that they are not alone. Even though someone looks “put together” and seems to have their life in order, deep down they are feeling scared and lonely.
