Intimidated

Saturday, January 24, 2015

It has been a very long time since I've blogged, almost two years I believe. I've been active on the site off and on since then. Pretty much on since the fall.

I love the features on this site, all the trackers, articles, information etc but the number of people here still intimidates me. The last site I was active on was a small sight where people kept journals and just added pages to them and well was just totally different. That site has closed and it's times when I really feel the urge to journal, privately but yet knowing people will encourage me, that I miss the site so much.

I'm putting this in writing to remind myself and encourage myself to try harder to get comfortable on this site. To maybe focus on just getting to know one of the groups I belong too at a time, putting more effort into getting to know people and supporting them. To stop being my normal, comfortable, shy, stand at the back of the room and don't speak to people, self. I spend all day at work on the computer so by the time I get home and am relaxing I don't want to get on the computer again. But I need to make more of an effort to do so.

Here's to making that effort.....to not leaving sparkpeople because the number of people scare and intimidate me...so watch out sparkpeople I'm here to stay :)

    Exactly, what Lisa said. You are the boss of you :) You can do exactly what you feel you need to do. No more, no less. You picked a good place to start again. With only 28 or so members, it's not too bad. Find what you need. Make the journalling work for you in some way here. I know you will find your way. It's really great to see you back and you do have friends here.
    Hugs

    I'm not very social either, but the great thing about SP is that you don't have to be. Whatever you feel comfortable with!
