After writing a particularly revealing post, I always place my laptop in my husband’s lap and ask him his thoughts. His first reaction is usually to tell me how good a post is and then he worries. He worries that something I have written, some vulnerability will be used against me. He knows as well as I do how awful anonymous commentators can be. He also knows about the commentators of the personal kind that can be worse than awful.
I cannot tell you the details. I cannot share the entire story…or stories of the people who have reached out to say what some of these posts have meant to them. I cannot tell you why or which posts they related to the most. I do know that my words have affected others in a way I never expected. It’s the only reason I am not afraid of the criticisms I have received or may receive if I continue to be honest with you.
*shake the haters off*
