Pretty Darn Cool

Thanks Lissy!

I will admit that I never really open up to anyone.  I am silly and chatty, but there are only a handful of people that really know me.  I have dealt with some pretty severe anxiety for about 12 years now and have kept it to myself.  Tonight I finally talked.  For the first time ever, over dinner, I said the things that I have NEVER said before.  Do you know what else I did??  I swore, a lot.  I don't typically  curse or speak "naughtily", but for some reason, tonight I just let it all out.  On my way home from dinner I listened to "Pieces of Me" by Ashlee Simpson, on repeat might I add, and felt so happy.

I thought this photo was fitting for this little message- I hate when people post photos of me when I look- well, stupid... but Lis took this photo this morning, and I love it.  We had a fantastic night last night, a group of us had a dance party on a neighboring roof  while listening to an assortment of 60's tunes.  I learn more about myself every day here, and I'm starting to feel pretty darn cool.  

What do you want to say, that you haven't had the chance to say?
Post it as "anonymous".  
Share it.

  1. I had thought that there was at least a handful of people that really knew me - I had opened up to them. But over the last several years, when I desperately needed them to believe me and see what was really going on... Well, I guess it's harder than I thought to truly be known. Oh well.

    1. I wish you much luck, love and happiness!

  2. good for you! i have actually the opposite problem. i overshare the deepest and darkest parts of my self with everyone, but have a hard time being chatty and social on the surface, with strangers. working on that :) good for you for just letting it all out!
