Do you have secrets? Well, I know everyone has secrets. And no, this is not an attempt as a post secret post like Kristina or Shelle did. Although, it would be really interesting to hear what people say.
I'm just wondering if there are people out there like me that really have NO secrets. Really. I mean there are things in my past that I'm not proud of, but plenty of people know about them. And I don't talk about them because they aren't readily on my mind all the time, and out of respect for myself and other people, I don't post it for the world to read about on the Internet, but if someone asked I would tell them.
I also have like NO filter. At all. For some reason, I always feel the need to regurgitate any and all information that I consume. And anything that comes into my brain, comes out of my mouth. So sometimes, I'm not always as diplomatic as I could be. I might be rude sometimes, but at least you'll know I'm being honest.
But, I don't' think I'm a gossip, though. If someone confides in me, as long as I can talk about it with that person, then I don't necessarily feel the need to spill the beans to everyone else around.
I do, feel the need to talk about stuff. Have you ever read the Five Languages of Love?
Well, I'm talk or speech or whatever it is. Words, maybe. I need words. I need to talk about how I feel. When I feel like crap, I talk about it. When I'm excited, I talk about it.
I love that I have friends and sisters I can call when I need to talk. It's very, very therapeutic for me. And crying. Crying feels really good sometimes. If I can talk long enough to get a good cry, then I always feel better. It's weird, for some reason, as I've gotten older, it's not as easy for me to cry as it used to be. But, it's like it releases the pressure.
So, recently, I was having one of my crazy, gonna flip my lid moments, and my hubby suggested I go see a good cry movie (he's a good, smart man, than one). So, I called up MB, and we went and saw a good laugh movie, instead, but I did feel better afterward. And I'm so glad I have such a great friend in her, that I can just barf up all of my emotions and she is there to listen to me, and sort through my imaginary problems (cuz that's what they are).
Thanks, Motherboard. Love your stinkin' guts!
So, how about you? Are you a secret keeper? Do you keep things in, or is your brain wide open for the world to see, like mine?
