Ok, I think I've established that my visibility test was successful. Thank you to all who confirmed it:).
So...I was talking to a friend today and she said that one of the reasons she got rid of her blog was because she was prone to write more than she may have intended on it. My response was that I was...am, the opposite. I never write anything terribly personal on blogs, or even in my journal. On the surface level, I tell myself it's because I don't want to risk people finding it and reading something I hadn't intended for anyone else.
However, I also realized that a large part of it is because, for me, writing something down has the same effect of saying it out loud: you have to admit it to yourself. And a lot of the things that I refuse to write out anywhere are just that: things that I don't want to admit to myself. So, maybe it would be good for me to write out more than I do. Not that I'm going to bear my soul, but it might help me somewhat to write some things on here, or maybe just in my journal even. It's a good start. I've never been much good at "bearing my soul", as I said. I'm just used to not telling people things. Not because I don't trust them, but because I never really did before college. And now I'm so overwhelmed by these amazing people God has placed in my life since I've been here, all more than willing to listen to me if I need to talk about anything, and I find that I almost don't know how!
So...there's my rant about not ranting. God is good. I don't think I tell him that enough, or remind myself of it enough. But He truly is. I just don't understand Him sometimes, that's all.
