Gosh, who hasn't said that before..... I've been writing this blog about the things that happened to me when I was a kid and also about things that are happening to me now. There is this girl I used to date and she was the first one i told about what happened. Spur of the moment I decided to give her the address to the web blog. Me and her aren't even friends anymore.... I bet she is going to think Im a total freak'n wierdo.... is there anyway I can play this off?

Hi awthedude;

It's hard to tell from your post whether the friendship ended because of the blog or something else. It is not unusual to feel open with a friend and share things that we normally wouldn't. It is not a mistake, it's how some friendships evolve. It's a show of trust and an invitation to be trusted.

Isn't it odd how we always expect others to view things in the same way we view them? Even odder is the fact that, a good deal of the time, others see things in a totally different light. Rather than put thoughts in their heads, it's usually a good idea to wait and see what thoughts they voice, if any. Otherwise, we're basing all our worries on assumptions. ;o)

How Depression Made Me a Man By Roro Asmar, NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness March 7, 2018 “Be strong!” “Toughen up!” “Don’t cry!” Never did someone stand over me as a kid and yell, “Let it out! It’s okay to cry! It’s human to hurt!” From my football coaches to my own father, it seems as though the social norm for men is to be some kind of impenetrable mountain of muscle that feels no pain and has no emotion.

All Made Out of Ticky Tacky by Dr. Irene Conlan October 29, 2017 Have you noticed that we, like our houses, are beginning to look alike. We walk alike, talk alike, wear the same styles and listen to the same music. No one wants to be “different, after all. We and our houses are becoming like the Ticky Tacky that we sing about.
