self-editing is the sound of the future
It was much easier to write on my blog when I knew that only strangers (and I) read it. I've been using it as a form of therapy, a place to organize my thoughts and emotions.
Lately, friends and family have told me that they read my writings, too.
Which makes me start second guessing myself and self-editing. In fact, it took me days to decide to publish this post. I mentioned this to Einstein (my friend, not the dead physicist), who pronounced this very Gödelian. Yes, I did need to look that up. No, I'm still not entirely sure what I read. See why I call him Einstein?
(Speaking of, did anyone start watching Genius on National Geographic?)
Anyway, now I'm hesitant to write about my deepest thoughts, like my intermittent depression and anxieties. I'm not reaching out for help here. If I had wanted to talk about it, I probably would have texted a "hey" because I'm descriptive like that. :)
Feel free to talk to me about what I write, but I reserve the right to ignore you if I'm not in the mood. Also, if you make a joke about my despair, I doubt I will find it humorous. Tread lightly please.
