When I do something scary or stressful, as was asked by today’s Daily Prompt, I like to do it alone. I love my family and friends, of course, and I like knowing that they’re supporting me, but beyond that, I’d prefer to be alone.
In a tense or stressful moment, I am building up as much strength inside me as I can and I don’t want to be distracted by other people. Like, if I’m upset, I want to be alone to cry ugly without worrying about bring judged (which I would and do – it’s called cry ugly for a reason.)
This has been a problem with this blog, actually. I don’t often call upon the greatest resource I have – my existing social resources. What if I suck? What if this is stupid? As the blog as been shaping up, I’ve felt more comfortable with reaching out to them, but I’m still anxious about it.
I kind of feel like I’m standing atop a windy hill with my pants down and that is so much easier to do in front of strangers. (Just trust me on this)
Here is a pragmatic voice of reason:
WIT-PRO and the psychology of winning

I think a lot of people feel that way about having actual family and friends on their blog. It’s somehow easier to withstand judging from strangers because we tend to care less Lol but your blog is great lady! So let your pants down and let it fly! 🙂
Ha! Thank you!
