e-therapy

I love the therapy aspect of a blog. Maybe I'm taking it a bit too far when I pour rants and raves, heart and soul online for whomever to read. I don't believe that, though. I take an odd comfort in reading about the emotional ups and downs of my fellow bloggers. It's not that I'm glad everyone's life is as dramatic, happy or often as boring as mine; it's just that knowing people are out there thinking the same things I think and fighting the same fight I fight really does make this world seem smaller. It's like giant group e-therapy, and I love it.

  4. Rightly said! But I find it funny how many of us feel the same way and commiserate via our blogs, yet fight our battles in "real life" independently. Why is that?

  5. Maybe we're all just afraid of the rejection we'd get if we had to be real all the time in person?
