It’s hard to know quite what to write in this space. Given the opportunity to say anything at all, I find that rather than having everything to say, I have nothing to say. Nothing I am sure of. Who might read this? How might they react? This is public, after all, and I have even less control over who sees it than I do on Facebook (although I do have room for a lot more nuance here, which I like).
But instead I am careful, and cautious, and all those other words that sound like one is mature and adult but actually mean “afraid”.
Well. Perhaps admitting that fear is a necessary step to over-coming it. I’d like that.
