I am very introverted and getting better at social interactions has always been one of the things I want to achieve

Keywords: experiences , fiction , introvert , life

I have always loved writing though it’s something I mostly do for myself but I figured that I could use my writing as a channel to share my experiences and find a way to be more vulnerable and connect with others. I guess this blog is about to be a diary-type thing where you get to see into my head and heart and if I’m being honest, that’s my favorite kind of writing to do.

I want to be able to feel real feelings when talking to someone, not just use emojis

Keywords: {0}

Instead of addressing how someone feels they hold it in and just sit with that feeling. They think everything that person does is about them because subconsciously that person is all they think about. Imagine if we just told people, “hey you hurt me when this happened” or “I don’t really like when you do this” instead of just holding onto those feelings. Imagine if we held ourselves to a standard of true honesty instead of just fake-ness.

Update about related sites

This is a small update about the related sites shown in the sidebar of this site at right (near the bottom).

Up until now, these site were primarily “business” oriented (and you can still see their RSS feeds by visiting the “Business Networks” site). Now, the sites listed here will be more focused on individuals, personality, individual’s behaviors, views, perspectives, etc.

Accordingly, this site itself will be even more focused on actually building connections (and in particular: personal connections). In other words: I think I will mainly list information about people who explicitly express a wish to connect with others.

If you are also interested in other aspects of life related to connecting with other people, please also check out (and / or follow) those other related sites listed in the right-hand column.

Thanks!

Living life is crazy, confusing, and scary

Making a blog, sharing my story and hoping to grow connections with those of the average, silent majority out there. Then I ask myself, whos a silent majority? I like to think the silent majority is our self conscious; our brain. We can be our worst enemies, or best friends, its a matter of self control. So, if you have a brain, your perfect for my blog! I hope to be able to write experiences that connect to my readers, and hope to grow friends through this experience. Even if only 2 people read this, being my aunt and my husband. It’ll still be exciting for my mental health and many more out there. Another reason I chose to start a blog, was being remembered. That sounds silly doesn’t it. Believe it or not, we were made to be on this big beautiful Earth for a reason. I am still learning why my presence is much needed, but I know that I am not here for nothing. Being able to write will create a memorabilia someday for my children, family and friends. This isn’t selfish at all, its making sure that someday, hopefully years and years down the road, my time on this earth was spent joyful and sharing my story. Everyone should be able to share their story, how to tell it, is completely up to you. Just imagine, my blog may be the stepping stone to a book that may come in my future. Its a matter of self control, and what’s next.

Losing connection is too easy nowadays when almost every avenue for in person interaction is closed off

Keywords: {0}

It’s not as easy to just grab a bite to eat with someone when every outside interaction comes with the specter of covid infection. This also closes off a lot of ways to create new friends. I recently have gotten back into a card game that could offer me new avenues of creating friendships, but the venues for meeting to play are dens of covid disregard. Social media is a tentative way to connect but it rarely offers the kind of comfort that seeing people in person creates. I have never been the type of person to create online friendships with strangers from across the globe. My parents were all too effective at instilling “stranger danger” type fear over chatrooms into me as a child. I am also a person who is just afraid of posting anything too personal online. That is part of the therapeutic (hopefully) quality of this blog, to offer a more honest (although technically anonymous) space for myself. I hope also that talking through these things, if you know me or not, will be in some way relatable to you, reader. We live in lonely times, and it’s easy to feel disconnected but we all have a lot more in common than we usually think.
