Welcome to my blog.

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while but I always found reasons not to do it. Well, to be honest, I had one main reason: trolls. I feared being cyberbullied for quite some time until I realized that it was a risk I had to take if I wanted to share my inner thoughts online, and I really wanted to do it. Why? Because I believe in the power of sharing our story. I’m pretty sure that my stories might not mean much to everybody, but I know for sure that there are people out there having the same feelings and similar experiences to mine, and I hope that sharing what I’ve learned so far from what I’ve gone through might help other people realize they’re not alone. I don’t know, maybe I also need to know that I’m not alone. In the end, I think connection is the most cherished thing, and the only way we can connect to each other is by being courageous enough to expose ourselves and embrace the vulnerability of sharing the universe inside our heads.

I have found that writing has a therapeutic effect on me. Sometimes I write in english, and sometimes I write in spanish, so I’ll be spreading my posts in two main categories according to the language I decide to use.

I hope this experiment turns out well. And if it doesn’t at least I can’t say I didn’t try.

Bienvenidos a mi blog.

He querido comenzar un blog desde hace tiempo pero siempre encontraba excusas para no hacerlo. Bueno, en realidad, solamente tenía una: los trolls. Siempre temí al bullying cibernético hasta que me di cuenta que era un riesgo que debía asumir si quería compartir mis pensamientos íntimos en línea, y de verdad quería hacerlo. ¿Por qué? Porque siempre he creído en el poder de compartir nuestras historias. Estoy segura que mis historias quizá no tienen mucho significado para muchas personas pero creo que hay gente allá afuera sintiendo las mismas cosas que yo y teniendo experiencias similares a las mías, y por ello espero que al compartir lo que he aprendido hasta ahora de lo que he vivido pueda ayudar a que otras personas se den cuenta de que no están solas. No lo sé, quizá yo también necesito saber que no estoy sola. A fin de cuentas, creo que la conexión es lo más preciado y la única manera en la que podemos conectarnos los unos con los otros es teniendo el suficiente coraje para exponernos y abrazar la vulnerabilidad que implica compartir el universo que existe dentro de nuestra mente.

He descubierto que escribir tiene un efecto terapéutico en mí. A veces escribo en español y algunas otras en inglés, por lo que dividiré mis posts en dos categorías principales dependiendo del idioma que decida utilizar.

Espero que este experimento resulte para bien. De no ser así, por lo menos no podré decir que no lo intenté.

I had know idea how much behind the scenes work it takes to post a single entry. Not to mention getting people to read it but like you stated it is very therapeutic. I think its awesome and unique how you chose to blog in spanish and english. Anyways good luck and I can’t wait to read more of your work.

    • Thank you very much! I’m glad to hear you started blogging too! It takes a lot of courage and you need to make sure everything you blog about is for the sake of connection. People will make mean comments and you have to be absolutely positive that you know who you are and that no one can make you feel like your experiences or your thoughts are not valid. You don’t have to be right, you just have to be yourself!!! And always remember that you are worthy and amazing, no matter what other people say 🙂

      Good luck!!!

  5. Una consulta, Facebook tenes? Comparto lo que expresas y me impresiona el parecido con escritos que yo he hecho, me gustaría mucho hablar con alguien que siento que comprende mi lenguaje. Hay sed de amor en el mundo, sed de volver al creer y transmutar. Gracias por compartir.
