Wow... should I keep it?

Reading over my last post I debated... should I delete it? It's pretty negative. Do I really want that kind of "stuff" out there? Do I really want to expose that kind of weakness, and borderline despair?

Well... it's not like strangers are reading this... those who follow my blog and read it are also those who care about me, warts & all. Or at least I hope they do, and if they don't, what they think of me simply doesn't matter. So yeah, I'm gonna keep it there. It's real, it's me... and since I'll get through it and move forward, it might just help someone else remember that things can be really bad, but they can also get better.

And can you truly appreciate the really great "ups" unless you acknowledge the really shitty "downs"?

It takes a lot to put a "negative" post out there for the world to see, but there's something so therapeutic about letting it out so you can reflect over and over again each time you read it and see how you've grown from the moment you posted that blog.

Being able to share a moment of "weakness" is a strength in my book!

I commend you for stepping out of your comfort zone and sharing such a intimate snap shot of what you were feeling at the time.

Keep your head up and know you are surrounded by people who love you and will support you anytime you need/want it!

Thanks Kim, for sharing with us. I think it's important for you to not delete that post, for reasons already mentioned, but also because it will serve as a reminder to YOU of how you were feeling at that particular moment in time. Just think, after some period of time has passed, you can read that entry again, and you will then realize how far you've come!
