There are things about me that I may never share here on Pretty All True.
That’s not a bad thing.
I don’t need to let you in so far that there is nothing left that is just for me.
Some parts are just for me.
That’s a good thing.
But there are pieces of me I shy away from sharing . . . because I feel that to share these things would make me too vulnerable. Vulnerable to your judgment and your rejection and your derision. So I stop short of saying certain things.
Maybe some of you think you know what it is I haven’t said. Maybe you do.
But maybe you don’t.
Occasionally, as I head out to comment on posts, I am caught off guard.
Someone gathers words and speaks thoughts that I could have said.
That I am scared to say.
Not that these writers have experienced my life. Not that we are talking about the very same experiences. That’s not what I mean.
But we are connected.
I see in their words that they know something of what it is to be me.
This week, I would like to share three posts by three awesome women.
All three of these women are amazing and talented writers.
I hope they will forgive me for not spending this post today talking them up.
I am selfishly linking the three posts that speak to me.
And which speak for me.
Guilty Squid from Guilty Squid: A Self-Proclaimed Internet Superstar
Mad Woman from A Diary of a Mad Woman
Renee from Random Rants
As always, their posts will stay linked on the right hand side of my blog for the next week.
