One further thought when it comes to talking about my story to friends. I mentioned that most of the time it’s not really about me, it’s about trying to determine the other person’s comfort level with the subject. I also talked about how writing here is completely different, because anyone who’s reading it, wants to read about it.
There’s one further nuance that I don’t quite understand, and which doesn’t fit with my current thoughts. I know there are some folks who I am friends with, and see on a regular basis, who have actually visited the site, some many times, and yet have never mentioned it to me. This would lead me to believe that there are folks who want to know about it, but who do not want to have to talk to me about it. At least that’s my best guess. If I’m wrong, I wish one of them would let me know. 🙂
