I just want to say thank you to everyone out there who follows me, comments and supports. Writing that letter last night was hard. I had concerns about sounding like a whiner or overly angry. But I woke up to great comments from you guys and I felt so much better about it. All that got me thinking about how much we support each other, yet most us of have never even met.
I have never in my life thought that I was a good writer. English was always my worst subject and in high school I regularly got D’s on papers. That was mostly because I refused to follow the format my school forced everybody to write in. I always wanted to be an A student, but I could not tolerate the restraints they put on my writing. Needless to say, I’ve been surprised by how many positive comments I’ve gotten about my writing quality. I really appreciate it. It’s definitely helped to improve my confidence when I post on this blog.
I think we all need one another in some way. Many of us are just looking for an affirmation that we aren’t alone in this world. We prop each other up when we’re going through tough times with positive comments and the like button. Sometimes I think it means more when a random stranger offers advice and tells you it’ll be okay then it does when your friends do it. In some ways, our friends are obligated to support us. It is part of the title of friend. We feel good when a new person comments because they are in no way obligated to comfort us. They could have just as easily moved on to the next blog.
I also want all of you to know that I will be here to support you, just as you have supported me. I desire for each and every one of you to be happy, and recover from the unfortunate ordeals that life has dealt you. Keep writing. Don’t ever give up. It will get better. It may have to get worse first, but life will improve. You’ll find that special someone. They’re out there. You just have to have a little faith.
