NOT WORRIED ABOUT WRITING
Do I worry about what people will think about me due to the fact that I write a blog & post things on Facebook pertaining to my divorce recovery & learning to live alone again? Do I fear that I won’t be able to get dates? Or that I will inadvertently drive away the man of my dreams? No.
No, I do not worry about those things. Recovering from breaking up with the man who I thought hung the moon within 2 years of getting a divorce from the man I was married to for a quarter of a century was no easy task. It was hard. Very hard. Realizing that someone is not who you thought they were is a very disappointing thing all by itself, without all of the other transitions that accompany those events. But I did it. I’m a survivor.
I write about these things, because I feel compelled to do so in order that my experiences may give someone else a small comfort so that they will know that they are not alone, that others have walked their path, & that there is indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. And the right man for me? Well, it’s going to be hard to find a man that can hang with me: after all, I am a unique individual, LOL.
But he will understand that I am a storyteller, & that to forbid a storyteller to tell their stories is akin to sucking the very life out of them. And he will understand that not everything that I write is something that I am experiencing at the present moment. And he will feel the need to encourage other people as much as I do. And he will appreciate the fact that I do not need him to make me happy, but want him in my life so we can share each other’s joy.
So no, I’m not worried about the things that I post. Clients, family, friends, & prospective dates take note: It is for you that I write, not myself. I understand that it’s not for everyone. But I hope that everyone understands that for me, it is something that I must do. #contentinGodslove.
