I am working from a mixed bag. The early days for this blog will be for introductions, the getting to know each other. I plan to push my confines on this front, to reach into parts of me that I have consciously and subconsciously hidden from myself. While I consider myself a relatively free person who shares her views with ease, there is still a lot to talk about.
This is nothing special about. We are human –and by nature want to look clean, to be celebrated for our moral standing and may be even our benevolence. As such we learn, to hide the other realities, during our formative years; the realism that we are imperfect, that we err. Social pressure tempts us to hide our not so good sides. So in an effort to be truer, to satisfy my long standing desire to be freer and much more frank than I already am, I will attempt, in my next few posting, to peel off some layers, just for introductions’ sake.
I do not expect this to be easy, but believe me, it is worth the effort. I mean starting this blog was itself a bold step. I had to deal with the fear of misinforming the reader; I shuddered at the thought of getting a harsh comment or even worse, my writing causing confusion, whatever that means.
Please stay with me. Introductions precede a mix of this and that; of stories around us.
