Emotional Kleenex

It occurred to me one of the reasons we blog is to get things off our chests and make us feel better. When I thought of this I came up with the idea of “Emotional Kleenex”. After all isn’t that was these blogs are?

We pull up the “Add Post” page and we type. We unload our emotional baggage into words and we feel better for it. We let it all out in little spots on the page and when we are through we look at it.

Sometimes there is a lot to look at, sometimes not. It could be of whatever color, but we re-read it and realize that this is us. We understand ourselves better because we have provided ourselves a concrete perspective of ourselves. We feel a lot better when all is said and done and to not feel as stuffed up.

Other come along and look at our mental sneezes and say “god bless you” or something, look at us and understand that we were not feeling well, and some know that we did this to unstuffy ourselves and feel better. Everyone understands, and the blogger becomes more human because we all have our good days and our “stuffed up” days.

There is no reason to apologize for unloading on a blog, it is what it is, “Emotional Kleenex”. It just goes to show that we as bloggers are human after all and not just some machine typing along dispassionately.

Not all of us use the blogs this way, but some of us do. Have you ranted and used your blog as “Emotional Kleenex”? Has blogging helped or did you need more than one pop-up to get the job done? Did you learn anything? Did other understand?

Tell me, let it all out… here have another “Puffs”, with aloe of course.

Sure I have used mine as an emotional kleenex, and also as a ballbusting party. The majority of them has been for the sheer fun of it. Being emotional is a part of being human. We get our feelings hurt, but yet me move on. If we have no where else to unload our thoughts outside of the blogs, then we can only put them here. I am often misunderstood, but hey I think its their fault for missing out on the true person behind the blogs. I have learn that many of the people here are real souls and they too hurt just like me.

Thanks harshaw

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"
