I wonder if people actually share their real feelings on WP. I am talking about the slime and the grime. The stuff that makes us human, yet the stuff that we don’t want others to see. We like to present polished images of our mad puffery.
I have often contemplated of just laying it out there, but then what would others think? Will I be accepted? But then again, who cares about acceptance and about what others think? If we cant be true to ourselves then what is the point of existence. Isn’t that what Jesus said, that the truth will set you free. ( I get it…. its a little out of context). But think about it… If I were to say something controversial , people would whisper about it, but it will eventually become boring and uninteresting.
In this world, there are two types of people, The ones who proudly flaunt public indecency and make a spectacle of vagrant behavior to the point of making it de rigueur and then there is the normal folk who are ashamed perpetually of the imperfections in their life, who are constantly looking for ways to make semblance of their hum drum lives. Some days better than the others….. struggling to make peace with grace, forgiveness. and redemption.
I’ve have opened up myself up in my posts and find that people admire and respect authencity and openness. And as a Chrisitian, many or most of our stories are our witness and testimonies that help others and at times lead others to Christ. If we can’t be open and honest about what has made us who we are, how can we accept ourselves which is more important really than acceptance by others. Maybe it’s my age that affords me the luxury of being of being exactly who and what I am with no fear or rejection or being unaccepted. And we should live just to please Christ and worry only about what He thinks anyway. Our stories may help others to heal and/or feel like they are not alone in their struggles. I have no appreciationat all for judgmental people and/or critics, and as far as I’m concerned if they don’t like what they read on my blog, they don’t have to read or follow me. But if they choose to be judgmental and critical, then I stop following them and giving any thought to answering negative comments. 🙂 ❤
