On writing real things

Sometimes I get the urge to write.  Really write, you know?  To put down my deepest feelings and struggles.  But then I pull back.  I'm afraid I'll hurt a friend or family member's feelings, or that something I write will be taken the wrong way.  I want desperately not to care, to have my say, and let others deal with the fallout.  But I can't seem to.

And then the desire to write leaves.

Been there. Something will come and we'll love reading it when it does!

Carrie, I have been going through the same thing lately. I write emails to myself just so I get it out and no one knows.. until I die or get hacked :)

I do the same thing. All the time. You can write your things and email them to me. I won't ever get hurt.
