This is the reason we are all here, right? Back in 2014 I had the idea to share all my secrets. Part to free the burden from myself of holding all of that in. And part to hopefully reach others who feel like they are alone in their journey. I felt alone for the better part of all these secrets, and if I can stop one person from feeling that way, then my mission is complete. However, I will never know if I reach someone, so I will share everything in time.
I had one major push to share my secrets, and that was a song that came out the same year I started this blog. Mary Lamberts, Secrets. The raw emotion and disclosure in such an open way, but also to an upbeat backtrack was inspiring. I figured if I was ever going to get better, I had to stop hiding who I am. If I was ever going to help others, I had to share. I feel as if I have a duty to share everything, or what’s the point?
I post my secrets when the timing feels right. There is no schedule or plan. When the moment hits, I write. I have a list of all the secrets I eventually want to disclose, but I need to feel the right emotion to be able to put it into words. So, sit back and enjoy the ride.
