Writer's Block: My secret self

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I tend to talk about personal stuff on LJ. I talk more about corsetmaking, my literary tastes, my taste in music and any health issues here. I only use one other social networking site, Facebook, and I must look shallow as a puddle in the middle of the Sahara in hot season on there.

Most of my offline friends are online (except Olly, and he's a bloody luddite). I only get to talk to some of my friends on LJ, some because they live on different continents, and some just because we have never chosen to meet up. I would say there are some things I talk more freely about here, because people can choose not to read them. In person, they're stuck with you droning on and on about stuff they don't give a hoot about!

I think that my LJ is pretty much me, warts and all. I'm fairly certain my friends will back me up on that :)

I use LJ as a place to think out loud. Sometimes I need to feel heard, sometimes it's more about proving to myself I'm not ashamed of who I am, what I think about, and how screwed up I've been. And the only place I can do that is in front of people I trust. I'm not even arsed if people answer, sometimes I prefer it if they don't.

What got picked back up as a medical log for my own records, has turned around and become a tool for the purpose of starting to accept myself.

I like reading entries from friends who share the same philosophy, it reassures me I'm 'normal', I guess.

I like yours as you do good rants :-) x
