Blog Number Four..

My last blog was my most honest one so far, after publishing it I felt a little embarrassed because I'd admitted to some things that I had never spoken of before, and I didn't know weather I was right or wrong in doing so. But what's the point of doing a personal blog if I'm not going to speak honestly? There would be no point if I was to lie, but I still felt like I'd be judged or maybe mocked for owning up to being an over anxious oddball who suffers from health problems. Having said that though, my embarrassment soon wore off after a few people read it & told me they thought I had done a good job! I'm starting to realize now that there's no shame in being openly honest about who you are as a person.

When I first joined Blogger I had no idea what to talk about but I definitely didn't think I would end up revealing so much about myself! That just kind of happened unexpectedly as I came across a new found bravery! Haha. I'm not sure what my next few posts will be about but this is only my 4th ever blog so I guess I'm still in practice mode, although I do feel like I'm starting to take it more seriously. I'll have to go away now & do some thinking & planning ready for next weeks blog, I'm sure I'll come up with something...X x

A Step In The Right Direction..

I've thought a lot about weather I should bother blogging this or not and I came to the conclusion that I should because it's not something to be ashamed of.. So here goes.. Last week I made a massive achievement by taking a leap into the unknown when my friend invited me to a BBQ with her, bare in mind I'm a nervous, socially anxious oddball (In my own opinion) After much hesitation & some encouragement I kindly excepted her offer & went with her. I cant say I felt totally at ease at first but I managed to overcome that once I got chatting to a few nice people. After I came home I realized what a huge step forwards I had taken, it was the first time in a number of years that I had gone anywhere without a family member (Apart from short distances) This is partly due to my anxiety issues but mainly because my health problems have always made me feel different compared to others, which then leaves me feeling unsure when it comes to going out alone without a close family member.

It might seem like a small thing to most people but the fact that I did it is a huge deal to me and I'm hoping it's a step in the right direction. I'm glad I did it & the next time I get invited anywhere, I'm sure I'll still be nervous but I'll know I can do it if I try... X x
