Wait what? This is not The Lonely Lion! Right it is me. Just a Blank Space from A Blog Filled With Thoughts. I am sorry but today you have to deal with me.
I started blogging four months ago and I have to admit I am really, really bad in keeping secrets but I have managed to keep my blog a secret. Some of my friends know I blog but nobody knows how to find it and they probably will never do. There are a lot of reasons why I don’t want them to know:
1. When I spent a year in the US as a exchange student I had a blog to tell the people at home what I was doing and I loved it. I took it really seriously and it hurts me a lot that some of my friends still make fun of me because of that blog.
2. They just don’t understand. I love to write and especially my classmates make fun of the things I write. They make me really uncomfortable with sharing my work and I don’t want that feeling to take over me
3. I write about a lot of things I would never tell my friends because if I would, they wouldn’t take it seriously
4.I am really insecure about what others people think of me and I know I shouldn’t be. Knowing that none of the people I know in real life read my blog makes it a lot easier for me. My blog is supposed to help me deal with my emotions, fear and my life. I want to be able to write about all the things that come to mind and if people would know about my blog I couldn’t do that anymore. I would be way too afraid of what they would think about it.
Maybe one day I will show them my blog but for now I am not ready to share that part of me with them. But before I will do that they have to realise how important writing and especially blogging is to me. I don’t think they will ever do that.
Do your friends know about your blog? If they do how did they react when they found out?
Lots of Love
Just A Blank Space
