How Much to Reveal?
What to reveal and what not to? It is never easy to draw the boundary. Sharing one’s intimate thoughts or spilling one’s secrets seems all so much easy these days while hiding behind the computer screen.
We tend to reveal more than we should have about ourselves online than face to face. I, unfortunately, also fall in that category. Would it come to haunt me eventually? I don’t know.
I never think that keeping a blog would turn into writing my own memoir. I never think of writing my views or my life’s stories to spark anyone’s interest. I only find writing addicting and satisfying. Maybe it is that nature of narcissism in me that compels me to write about myself, my life and my personal insights. Maybe it is that egocentricity that drives me to keep talking about myself and anything around me.
It is hard to resist the spell of the blogosphere. Little by little, the Pandora’s box is opened as I indulge myself in blogging. More and more, I feel like stripping myself naked in front of strangers and my vulnerability revealed in public. I never really get over that uneasiness. Will they eventually come back to haunt me? Maybe. What can I do about it? I don’t know. I hate to think too much. As for now, I will just enjoy while I can the joy of blogging.
