to be honest, i hadn’t actually read my previous post since i wrote it. i wrote it. i posted it. and i walked away. i read the comments there. but that was it. i got a few texts from people. i got a few facebook messages from people. i was RTed on twitter. i got a twesponse from someone. i think i even got a phone call.
i didn’t realize how many people i was inviting into my pity party. i had no idea. i would be lying if i said that i wrote it just to get it out of my system. i definitely wrote it to reach out in an unobtrusive way, in an indirect way. i didn’t want to talk to anyone or see anyone when i was feeling down, but i was definitely reaching out for some support.
and i got WAY more than i thought i would.
and it really surprised me. i wondered why in the world i was getting so many responses to it, in so many different forms. it really confused me. so i decided to go read it and honestly, i broke my own heart. it astounds me how much just a few words can so accurately describe the way someone feels. i sometimes don’t realize the potency of my words. not that i’m a FANTASTIC writer, but i’m pretty darn good. i know how to use words to say exactly how i feel and i forget that i can pull people right into my heart and my mind and my soul with just a few words.
so i just want to say thanks.
thanks to everyone who took 2 minutes to check in, to see if i’m ok. i’m floored by it. i know that i’ve been really busy lately with school starting and having a few jobs and i know i’ve slacked on keeping in touch with everyone and i do miss being able to keep connected with people and blogs and twitter. i miss having that time. but it was really nice and touching having so many people, some of whom i hardly ever talk to, reach back. you people rock my world. seriously.
