What It Is Wednesday: Cutting People Out
Back in January 2005, I started blogging regularly at a LiveJournal site called SuperGirl@40 as part of my personal therapy to work through healing from a failed marriage…and then suddenly working through all the other crap in my life from Â childhood. Â It was a significant part of my healing journey and I shared raw emotions and “dauntless reality”Â with others in a small circle of new friends who were also dealing with healing from long ago Â and recent traumas. Â It was a fairly private blog–well, that privacy Â lasted until one of my kids mentioned it to an ex-inlaw and then I took a deep breath and watched it go public very quickly. Â I still write in that raw andÂ profound way I’m known for but having healed so many of my early and frequent wounds, I don’t really write the heavy, raw, vulnerabilities like IÂ used to. Â I’m committing here to bringing that back, in case you wonder if it ever really left. Â That means committing to putting the big, scary stuff out there.
The aboveÂ post is my contribution to this week’s edition of aÂ blog hopÂ started byÂ Kelley Harrell ofÂ Soul Intent ArtsÂ called “What It Is Wednesday,” whichÂ gives bloggers a chance to dauntlessly tell it like it is. You can viewÂ theÂ inaugural postÂ to learn more about joining in or just to read other blogs in the hop. Â Â
