So it seems my Twitter account is linked to my blog, which is fine... I'm not a big twitterer, tweeter? So SOMEONE who happens to be a bit tech savvy figured it out. Which BTW is totally cool with me.
I have missed using this as my outlet to whine, share, celebrate and record our family, but Facebook is just SO easy to drop a line and you're off. You know? But that's all it is, a clever line to answer the social protocol "How are you" but not actually wanting to know.
Have you ever HONESTLY answered a casual "How are you?" from someone... It's actually quite hilarious to see the expression on the check out lady's face when you say "Actually, my shoe broke and I locked my keys in my car, I found a distant relative in England and all I want to do is call my Dad and tell him about it, but I can't (insert rogue tear) it's been a pretty rough day."
It will be the fastest check out you have ever experienced...
But why don't we? Why are we so afraid to share emotions, and struggles, and REAL LIFE? Not just with strangers but people who we consider our friends, or acquaintances that could be friends if you'd just open up a bit? Rejection? Maybe, but you'd probably most likely find relief, because your life looked SO perfect on Facebook.
I'm not afraid, because my struggles and flaws and emotions are what make me who I am, don't tell me "Fine and you?" Tell me what is going on with your life? How can I pray for you?
How are you? Really?
