How does one navigate the minefields? What is too much and what is too little? And most important of all, if we only post the things in our lives that or positive, or frame all our actions in the positive, is that deceit?
Here's what I know: I find my own personal truth through the personal truth of others. And when I re-read a post, I sometimes find things I didn't see before.
So, what I'm saying is, I appreciate it when people are honest about their lives than those who use the internet to create a pseudo-perfect version of themselves. I mean I don't want to see you wearing your crotchless panties on Facebook, but I also don't think less of you for admitting you have them.
The other thing I know is that since I wrote the last post I've moved on. It's funny how putting a thing into words can also put that thing into perspective.
Ps: I have decided to do a Prism anthology. Please check back for more details soon.
