To write dangerously without thinking about the consequences used to be what I could do in my journal. But not when you write online. Online others may read what you write. So you must tiptoe around subjects. For the sake of your family. For the sake of your work. For the sake of your friends. You must anonomyze some of your family unfriendly politically incorrect feelings and water them down for the web. Should I continue to do so? Or write with reckless abandon, for this wildness is what attracted me to write in the first place. Not just to be socially acceptable or liked by others by espousing a popular opinion. But to truly be none other than myself. Social media experts be damned! From now on , this is what I choose!
