perfect words

Yesterday someone dear to me said: “You always pick the perfect words

It’s maybe the best compliment of my life. I try with my words, I really do. Words serve me well. Whenever I’m grappling with something powerful, I am drawn to write about it. Writing helps me sort through my emotions and organize my thoughts so that I can process things. I feel like finding the perfect words with a particular audience in mind allows me to express things that I’d be less eloquent about in person. 

The first few years of contributing to this blog were a therapeutic writing outlet. My stories were a perfect fit for the this platform. I feel like I’ve been phoning it in here on the blog for the last few months, though. I guess shit’s gotten a bit too real lately. I find myself stuck in this confusing place between wanting and needing to process, but knowing that this forum is too public to protect the privacy of the people I love. 

I’m not certain how to proceed. How can I possibly pick the perfect words?

I can totally relate, there have been oh so many times that I really wanted to write about something, that I needed to write a particular this or that, but knew that MY&E was not the right outlet. It's frustrating.

I guess, my dear, you need to start a new blog. :) Perhaps anonymously. (But don't forget to give me the link, cause it's true what they say, "you always pick the perfect words."

Love you, g-friend. To the moon and back.
