They're All Gonna Laugh At You

A good friend of mine popped into my IM and asked what I was doing. I told her that I was reading blogs. I have taken the liberty of correcting abbreviations and spelling errors.

Friend: are they that interesting?
Me: yeah, and funny too.
Friend: what are they life stories or diaries?
Me: all sorts of random stuff
Friend: Oh
Me: whatever strikes your mood
Friend: anything about how people hate their job?
Me: not that I’ve seen but I’m sure they do it
Friend: Excerpt...

So I sent her a couple of paragraphs off one of my favorite blogs.

Friend: Y would people want to broadcast their daily life for the world to read
Me: because some of us are lonely people in desperate need of acceptance and approval. Sometimes when people laugh at the comic twist we put on a crappy day we feel accepted and loved.
Friend: Loved?
Me: not real love. But a kind of adoring fans type love that satisfies temporarily.
Friend: I don’t know what 2 say
Me: most people don’t get it, its a creative outlet and its good venting with feedback from people of different backgrounds and opinions.
Friend: There’s so many questions but I don’t know how to ask without sounding callous or insulting
Me: another thing you have to remember is that these are people you will most likely never in your life see. So you feel safer saying whatever you’re feeling
Friend: Then why would you want acceptance from them?
Me: it’s not that simple, you see people don’t understand. We need that outlet and we don’t tell people because people think it’s stupid and unnecessary.

Have you ever found yourself in this conversation? Have you ever gotten the "That's nice dear" look from someone when you tell them you blog?

I got tired of seeing that look so I just don't tell anyone anymore. I thought that this was one friend that I could tell about this and she would understand. I guess not.

Dys...I know some of the bloggers show real love honey! Please don't take offence to that! It was a figure of speech.

Hey... I love you! Or I wouldn't scream, "I HATE YOU, YOU BITCH!" in jealous rages all the time. Wait... I think people are going to get the wrong idea from that...

Some people just don't get it. A certain young friend of mine keeps telling me I need a new hobby. I of course, ignore it.

The fact that we use this avenue to express or attempt to express our inner feelings is for our "relief" not for the understanding/permission of others.

Don't worry, be Happy
