Am I that pathetic that I desperately need to know someone has liked or followed my blog?
This is incredibly mind-boggling. After writing behind locked doors for years and never sharing with a soul, I find this idea of someone approving or, at minimum, viewing what I’ve written heart-palpitatingly uplifting.
Not sure I understand.
I really want to have a literary dialogue. I want to know others get me. I want to have accountability. I want to grow, learn, be encouraged. I know that means I have to subject myself to opposing opinions. I tell myself I’m strong enough to endure the criticism. I’m the biggest critic of others, even if I don’t post it. To be completely honest, I don’t know if I am.
That was probably stupid to admit.
I realize this is trivial. I am going to hate that I posted this as soon as I’m done.
I won’t regret sending out a big THANK YOU to this forum and its followers. This is meaningful stuff. Can I like my own blog?
