The great thing about having your own space online is that you can write whatever you want!
Well, that’s not quite true.
Even though we’ve carved a space out, it never really belongs to us.
Furthermore, it’s still visible to others.
And that visibility forces us to censor ourselves.
As such, there are certain things that I would NEVER talk about online.
Not out of fear of what others might say, but simply out of a sort of understanding. That this will never be a truly ‘safe’ zone.
So where do I go to express those thoughts?
When I talk to someone I can trust.
Or I simply pen them down (yes, with a real pen) on paper (yes, real paper).
I HIGHLY recommend the writing option.
That said, I’m sharing these thoughts online.
