Blog-tember Daily - 9-16-15

Today's prompt for 2015 Blog-tember, with Bailey Jean, is a very difficult "challenge" ... as are many of these thought-provoking prompts; at least, they are difficult for me!

So, the prompt for today is:

The Real You vs. The Online You;
Are they the same, or different?

I don't find it very easy to talk about ME; as in, how I feel or what I think or...yeah, is this really me on Facebook, or on my Blog?

Is it?  I've been thinking about this for a couple of days; so, what have I decided?  Hmmm ...

I find it easier to "speak my mind" when I am typing - like on Facebook, commenting on someone's post; or when I am blogging.  Somehow, I feel the words just flow from my heart, to my fingers as they fly across the keyboard.

I don't think I am a "different" person, other than that ability to "speak" freely.  And, yes, maybe I do speak more freely than I would if it was a person to person conversation.

And, I know I am much less frustrated at trying to speak loud enough for someone to hear me...because when someone is reading your words, do they really know how you are feeling; that you are frustrated or worried or sad or happy or...whatever?

Well, the answer to that is - yes, probably!  Because, as we continuously read each other's blogs, and comments and statements...yes, I do think we "get to know each other"...

And that brings it back I the same person "on screen" as I am "off screen".

Perhaps!  Maybe!  I think so!
