Why is it that we spend so much of our time worrying about what others think of us? What makes their opinions worth so much more than our own?

I have spent years, too many of them, being afraid. Afraid to be myself, afraid of not being loved, afraid of letting my own voice be heard.

That is why I write here. My voice may be shrouded behind some sense of anonymity but I do have a voice. Here my voice rings out causing people to listen and think and comment on it. Some part of me glows and grows and becomes more alive. Here I become powerful beyond measure.

For once I am not afraid.

I think that's why so many people blog...even if no one else ever reads, write something, to put thoughts down and know that anyone in the entire world might one day read it, or's different from a paper journal hidden in a nightstand drawer. Because even if no one comments, it still may have been read by many, many people...and it may have made them stop and think for a moment that they are not alone.
