Blogging is interesting, I have mentioned before, that it is not totally unlike group therapy.
You find people with similar interests, similar issues, read their posts, sometimes are brave enough to post a comment.
Then you find the experience becomes richer, people answer you. You find out that they feel even more like you do, that you are not alone in this. This is often very important. To find out that you are not alone. That what torments you, is not for you alone. Sometimes you see how they were helped, point the way for you perhaps, or help you over some bumps in the road now and then. It is nice to hold a hand on a bumpy road.
There are even times when you receive answers, suggestions, ideas. Not all will be a fit for you, but this too, gives hope.
Friends can be made, you are unlikely to visit with them, but they are still friends.
Because you are not alone. Even when you think you are, there is someone at the other side of a screen, watching and when you reach out, they grasp your hand. Grasp back. Don’t stay in the dark. Let in some light.
