I don’t know if it is like this with all bloggers but there are some things that I will not write about here and those things – they literally burn at the tips of my fingers. You might be scratching your head and thinking, Kimberly, you’re pretty good at being the queen of oversharing when on a writing roll.
True. I mean, I crack my mind wide open for all of you and write unabashedly about my mental health. I don’t hold back with that because it is so therapeutic for me and I hope that it helps someone out there who is struggling.
There are things, that when I sit down to scribble, I see a massive stop sign. The reason I choose not to share them is because they are not my story to own. At least not 100% to own. I respect the people I love and therefore I need to keep their stories private, even if that means that story impacts myself. Their well-being means more to me then — well, putting it out here.
So I scribble in my journals instead, share with my doctors, and talk with my support group.
Sometimes though, I have that itch to write here. I know that someone out there reading would be like “Me too!” or “You can handle this!” because this blogging community is wonderfully supportive.
I still won’t.
I will say this to you all though –
That you are all incredible and no matter what you are going through whether it is depression or maybe you lost your job or a family member is sick or you have money troubles or your flunking school or hell, you have a flat tire this morning – whatever suck you are dealing with, it’s absolutely bullshit. Every trial and struggle – big or small is absolutely bullshit. I see you and I hear you.
Sometimes people want to fluff you off and minimize your pain. NO. Don’t allow them to do that. Your pain is valid.
And know what else?
And you’re going to make it through this.
Let’s do this November *Inserts Punch*
