I originally created my personal blog to share raw and vulnerable truth in fighting the battle in mental illness.
Slowly, it became a breathing ground for me to vent and share all the good and bad that happened in my life. Why? Because I felt like my mental health really contributed a big factor to almost all things that happens in my life.
However, I’ve realized my blog overall seems so… angry.
When I asked one of my good friends how she would describe my blog, she said “aggressive”.
I don’t use any vulgar language but I do like to get my point across. I like to fight for the mental health stigma and I feel the importance of representing the community.
I like to make sure I don’t look small in my writing because I deal with mental illness. I want to sound and seem just as strong as someone who doesn’t.
But how do I find the equilibrium of sounding like an angry blogger all the time Vs. talking about things that what others “want” to hear?
This has been a huge struggle of mine recently as I had few individuals in my life contacted me asking if I was pointing my fingers at them in my blogs (which was NOT the case at all).
I’m still learning my lesson to take step by step, and not to expect for a huge change overnight just like how it will take time for the mental health stigma.
Nevertheless, seriously, am I the only one that deals with this issue?
