I’m writing because a) I’m a writer, that’s what writers do. b)  I have anxiety in social situations that leaves me feeling awkward and unsure, writing gives me a way to freely express myself in a way that is true and authentic. And c) I love it when I read something that reminds me or assures me that I am not alone and that is what I hope to do: write with honesty and without fear so that someone, maybe you, will sigh and say, “oh, it’s not just me,” or, “I feel that way too,” or any other sentiment that reminds you that we are in fact connected.
