What Blogging has done for me...

What has blogging given you the confidence to write or create and then *share*… that you wouldn’t otherwise have done?

The Gift of Blogging Confidence: Group Writing Project

Blogging on my first blog was sharing my pictures that I take by the thousands, Photos Change My World.   My second blog, We Are One, however took me to a whole new place of sharing and creating work that I would not have shared if I didn't have this avenue.  I wrote things for myself before, but here in this blog I could share the challenges I faced battling depression and the aftereffects of child abuse.  I am sharing at last how I changed from surviving to thriving.  I am still astonished when someone comments on what I have written.  Through blogging I have also interacted with other bloggers to cheer them on to their success and share their sorrow when their entry lets me into a sad part of their lives.  I appreciate the opportunity to learn I am not alone in some of the challenges I am facing.  I am not alone in wanting to find a better way to live.    
Depressed and not know it.
Pain of Guilt
