A friend had a post that got me thinking. She wondered if the version of us that we post here in blog world is truly that of ourselves, or if it is a sweetened, photo-shopped version. I have often wondered the same thing as I peruse the blogs of friends and family...and I have had people pose questions or comments to me that make me wonder if they know the true me.
I think in my case I fall on the other end of the spectrum. Most people try to polish everything and make their life all bright and shiny. I am not afraid of the ugly. I have no shortage of posts where I show the wounds of my soul, or whine about the unfairness of the world. I think I am a more cheerful person than my blog portrays. I have people tell me all the time that they think I use drugs because otherwise I could not be so happy. I guess I need to work on showing that side of Holly on this blog.
