I decided to start a blog because I need somewhere to release my thoughts about life. My first thought was to start a journal, but I know I’m not one for writing. But being the tech-savvy girl that I am I thought I might enjoy publishing my thoughts somewhere like this. I’m still getting a handle on how this all works. However, I am enjoying it so far.
I suppose I should start with why I think this is needed. I just got out of a relationship, a four year long relationship that took up the majority of my teenage years. I’m sure I will write a lot about it in this. But for now the details are not important. What is important is the effect it has had on me. I don’t really feel comfortable talking about it with friends and family, because they really don’t understand what I went through. I’m not a whiner by any means. It simply just isn’t something they have experienced, nor something I would ever want them to experience. That is why I decided I would write about it somewhere anonymous. I can say what I need to say without needing to worry about helping whoever is doing the listening understand where I’m coming from.
I’m sure there are many people out there in cyberspace that will be able to relate to what I will eventually write about it. The statistics say that there are many women in abusive relationships. That is another reason why I thought I’d give this a shot. Who knows what might come of it? And perhaps what I have to say might help someone. Even just one person. I would be happy with that. All in all, I’m hoping this will help my healing process. It’s going to be a very long and slow one, but I’m trying to get on the right track.
