***Thinking About It...

Thanks to all of you who commented on the Roots post.  It is still on my mind.  I guess none of us really has an answer for close relationship building huh?  I wonder if we all met in person if it would be as easy to converse then as it is here in the cyber world?  Funny huh.  How through your blogs I feel like I get to know each of you. I asked my therapist if she considered online friends, real friends.  She actually said yes, but to a point.  Obviously I couldn't call on anyone here to go to coffee, or pick up my daughter from school when I am running late.  But I do feel as if I am getting to know everyone and it is a comfort.  I am thinking....***thinking*** of reaching out of my comfort zone and trying to develop a friendship, so to speak. But to be honest it scares me to death!  On the other hand I have always seemed to find out that when I tackle my biggest fears, I am always happy I did.  But like I said I am still thinking about it.  Feels as if I am proposing to go bungee jumping or something nuts.  But that's how it feels. The only thing holding me back is I know I will be moving soon, in February probably, and it makes my mind say "Not now."  "It would only disappoint the other person and yourself." So I guess I am trying to figure out if that makes sense or not and if it matters or not. That "intuition" thing in my brain doesn't always work....so we'll see.

Hope you all have a great day!♥

  1. It's an interesting thing to be thinking about. I know that while I'll probably never meet those who I interact with thru my blog but still I do consider you all as online friends. the kind of friend you'd sit down for coffee with and put the world to rights. Friends I am grateful for whether we ever meet or not.
    you've got me thinking too
    take care lovely

  2. I definitely consider my blog/online friends as friends. It's a different type of friendship, but a friendship nonetheless.

    I hope you take the risk to initiate a friendship. Don't think about it as 'I'm moving in February', think of it more as there's still an entire season between now and then so maybe you should just think of all that you could gain during this time. Just a suggestion.

    Good luck!!

  3. Once, I met a young lady doing her student teaching where I live. She was only around for a few months, but I enjoyed the time we had together, and was particularly impressed that she was willing to be friends and hang out with people as much as she did.
