I came here to talk to myself. I was on another site because it's what we do, site hop, and I instantly became overwhelmed.
I wondered about how we support one another and all of the reasons we don't / won't.
I read post after post about community & family by people who have no idea how to be a part of either. People who'll encourage me in the comments because it looks good. People who'll unashamedly inbox me about their next thing but have never clicked on this site. Multiple folks attempted to sell me lashes, wears, books, clothes and inviting me to contribute to fundraisers. I want to, but my mind says, instead, “set the alarm for Diane’s online retreat”; “get Blue something for her birthday, no matter how long it takes”; “post on your site”; “promote those who took the time to promote you,” and the list goes on.
Tears flowed without me being able to or even caring to stop them. There's nothing crazy about expecting those you show up for to do the same for you. I'm not sad, just mindful of how this goes and remembering that I'm fortunate. I'm also worthy of better things.
Thanks for being a part of my vision, members.
Take the time to read Karen’s blog and support & encourage because that's what community is about. This site is built for community, after all.
