I don’t have something funny to say all the time. Remarkable events don’t happen to me on a daily basis. Yet, I feel the need to write every day. If I don’t write, I feel pent up inside. There are too many noises going on my head. Too many thoughts that need somewhere to go.
Yet, I check my blog constantly for comments. I love comments. When someone comments, I feel validated, heard. When I don’t receive any comments on a post, I freak out a little inside. I second guess myself. Is it worth it? Should I keep writing? Does anyone care?
This is by no means a cry for sympathy. I’m merely sharing my thought process when it comes to blogging.
I love to read and comment on other people’s blogs, but I’m egocentric, I admit it. I want people to read what I write. Not because I think I’m fantastic, but because it makes what I wrote seem real to me.
I can’t pretend I don’t care. I can’t play it cool. This has always been a side of my personality. I ask for what I need. I never waited for a guy to call me. I called him. I have no game. You can read my emotions on my face. Or in this case you can read them right here.
Tell me: Am I alone? Do you feel the need to be validated? Share your thoughts!
