Talk About It Tuesday (Link Up)

I don’t know about you but I have a hard time being vulnerable. I don’t like talking about things that make me feel raw and out in the open. It feels unsafe and just downright uncomfortable. So of course one of my goals in creating this blog was to (you guessed it!) be more honest and real. To be more vulnerable. And while I’m at it, why not help a whole army of people do the same exact thing? Why not all be uncomfortable together? Cause really, it’s more fun that way (or at the very least slightly easier!)

Yes, I realize my little graphic kind of sucks. But for now, it’ll have to suffice while I’m working on making a better one!

But enough rambling! What exactly is Talk About It Tuesday?

-It’s a link-up…on Tuesday (you probably already figured that one out!:)

-It’s where you share about your past experiences, current struggles, or topics that might be a little controversial/that have a lot of stigma attached to them. In short, it’s a time where you write about anything that’s out of your comfort zone and makes you feel a little uncomfortable.

-It’s a time to be completely honest.

So why is all this honesty and vulnerability stuff important?

-Honesty and vulnerability combat shame, fear, and lots of other negative emotions that make us feel horrible.

-They help us to connect with other people. If we hide and don’t talk about our experiences and emotions (both positive and negative), than people don’t get to  really KNOW you (and that sucks!)

If you don’t know what to talk about…

Talk about anything and everything! 

-Mental and physical illness

-Relationships

-Faith

-Your views on certain issues

-Difficult experiences you’ve had (a relative’s death, etc)

If you’ve been wanting to talk (AKA write) about a particular thing for a while but haven’t because you feel ashamed or scared or have been putting it off for fear of judgement…Talk About It Tuesday is the time to get it out in the open!
