On being open

I’m historically not a very open person. I censor myself and edit my opinions continuously as some kind of defence mechanism. For ages my M.O. has (largely subconsciously) been: “Don’t say anything out-of-place or possibly offensive, it’s best to just express no opinion. Then people will still like you.”

Opinion goes unexpressed. Except for the few people I know will care about me no matter what.

In this blog I want to be open about the struggles I have and some of the messy bits of life. Not for it’s own sake, but so I can make and see progress in my own life and hopefully help out others in the process.

I know I’m not the only one who deals with the life issues and thought-black-holes that I do, and to keep it all inside my head is a kind of selfishness.

So. blogging again.
