I wanted someplace new. Someplace where no one knows me, and where I would'nt be recognized. But where online journals/diaries are concerned, the actually good choices of places to write are limited.
This is new. I'd never heard of KindMind until today. I don't know if this will be the place I ultimately settle, but never hurts to give it a try.
I am a completely a totally normal, average person. I'm a bit of a geek, and a bit shy, but I'm responsible and I like to think I am good at taking care of myself. I have things I dislike about myself and things I want to change (doesn't everyone?) but I know on the whole I'm pretty lucky to be who, what, when, where, and how I am.
However right now I live a pretty isolated lifestyle. I moved away from my home town to a place where I don't know anyone. I am in my mid-thirties and have a hard time making friends because I am shy and suffer from anxiety. I go to work and I interact with co-workers fine, but outside of that I'm not good about opening up about myself on a personal level and am also a bit of a homebody. This has created a struggle for me and right now I am in the beginnings of the transition to move back to my hometown. Don't worry, I didn't leave because I dislike my hometown. I actually love it a lot. I just wanted to try living in this new place to see if I could fall in love with it. I didn't. Though, I never get tired of seeing the mountains!
I don't know if you can follow people on this site or not, but if so, and this is interesting enough to you, please drop a comment and stick around. As I said, I don't know if this is where I will land, but the interface is good at least, so that's a good start.
