I just was stunned at the response to my post below about facing my mother and my own "monster" within. I want to thank so many for responding, I must say I am shocked! I didn't expect anyone to respond to it, or maybe one or two at the most. And thats not why I really posted it. Let me share with you why I did decide to post it ......
I was very hesitant to post the post below and I had almost decided against it. As the way I express myself in a lot of my posts is through my poetry, Art, writing and posting cool pics I like to connect to the poems,etc.. This post was very different for me as it was very very direct and just "out there" for all to see and read in the blog world. This was very very personal. But when I had decided to not post it after I wrote the whole thing and attached my soul collage, a thought came to my mind, "what if just one person comes upon this post, and reads this and they are going through or feeling a similiar situation and are confused and hurting and don't know what to do"? And thats when I decided to take the "Risk" of being so vulnerable on here, and to post it anyway, because if it could help just one person, a woman, a man, a teen, a child, well then it would be more than worth it! So I guess you could say I took a few risk and faced a few fears and "monsters" this week, even more than I realized..:-))
"I'm not an angry girl, but it seems like I've got some fooled, cause every time I say something they find hard to hear they chalk it up to my own anger and never to their own fears.... imagine your a girl, just trying to finally come clean, knowing full well they prefer you dirty and smiling"..."Oh, I am not a pretty girl, oh I don't want to be a pretty girl, .oh I want to be more than a pretty girl"...Lyrics of "Not a Pretty Girl" by Ani Di Franco
