And yet, there are those who desperately want (or need) to let out some baggage. But they find it increasingly difficult to open up. The fear of judgement, at times, becomes one of the major reasons some people keep it in. Of course, it's different from one person to another. Still, there is a divide.
Then, there is blogging. Initially more of an online journal than a marketing strategy, it is an outlet. Those who couldn't voice out their inner thoughts to their family and friends suddenly have an avenue to express themselves. And they could opt to do so anonymously. With blogging as a trend now, have you asked yourself: Why do I blog?
You want to tell them about the 'you' inside
Countless thoughts, too many emotions
For so many reasons, inside you, they hide
With everything shut in so tightly
Inside you, the emotions clamor and rage
Often, you just want to reach out and say
But people like to pretend everything with you is fine and dandy
And so, you find a place you can be anonymous in
And let out what, to your loved ones, you're afraid to show
Inside you, they hide - shut in so tightly. Reach out and say you're afraid.
