I want to share a story..

Dearest Readers,

I want to share a story with you. This story will almost certainly changed how you view me, it may change how you feel about me as a person. This story was a major event in my life. It changed something inside of me.

I have hid this from many and only a few know. I wasn't ashamed. I just didn't want to deal with the drama and judgement.

Now, I want to share my story but I am still afraid of the judgement. I tend to say I don't care what others think but that isn't entirely true. In many ways, I do care what you think and I want you to like me, heck even love me. This secret story is something that must people feel VERY strongly about one way or another.

I want to tell you the story that changed such a big part of me but I'm worried what you would think and what others will think.

I suppose it doesn't matter in the big picture.  Your views on it may change how you see me now but it won't change the past.

Do I share this story and face my fears of disappointing my friends and reader? Do I keep this to myself? I am not ashamed but this isn't something I would yell from the mountaintop. ( because it is so personal and a hot button issue with most)

I blog for myself. I think everyone should blog for themselves. It's like our diary except it's not meant to be private. I completely think you should blog about it.

But, keep in mind that there are very narrow-minded people that read your blog (I'm only assuming here...and I'm not talking about me of course) so you may get an anonymous comment or two and I'm sure it will be hurtful in some way.

BUT, I still think you should get it off your chest. I think you'll feel better.

Let me know if you decide to post it. You could always link it up tomorrow for Talk To Us Tuesday! I have a great group of friends who would NOT be judgmental.

Good luck with your decision.
