When I started my livejournal in 2003 (2004?) I initially started it to make very personal, emotional entries which were public and anonymous. It was not long at all before real life got mixed in and I felt a need to edit more carefully what I expressed, and even make those more careful posts friends only, then create filters. In some way, it's become too muddies now for my livejournal to fulfill the purpose I created it for. But, the truth is, the raw emotions are what I look for to read. To see where we're all commonly human.

I would notice if you stopped writing here. I don't comment often, I read almost everything (I'll admit to skimming the more sports-based posts). Thank you for this post, especially, though.

And thank you. I always read your stuff as well. I don't feel like I know enough to comment effectively, much of the time, but I really appreciate the way you present yourself, that balancing act you allude to. It's funny, posting this reminded me of what I liked best about LJ and find Facebook totally inadequate as a substitute for.

Yes. This says it very well!

I'm trying. Rawness comes hard for me, not least because it tends to come in sentences that most people regard as the antithesis of raw. But I'm trying!
