Watch out.....It's getting deep

Ok, so Drazil and Jen got me thinking.  I have actually been thinking about this for a while, but they kind of brought it to the surface for me.  I miss my friends.  I miss having friends that I can call up anytime to talk with about nothing.  I don't know if I am in a different place in my life or what, but I miss that so much.  I love my husband, but he just doesn't get it.  I am a shy person, so I know that has something to do with it.  I am also very self-conscience so I constantly think what I say is stupid and think why would anyone care about what I have to say.  I know that I have work on these things myself, but it gets hard.  It's hard not having someone to confide in.  This blog is definitely helping me, but there are times when I don't post something because I think everyone is judging me and will think I am dumb.  I think I am always being judged.

I just want to thank ya'll for the support and acceptance.  I really do appreciate it!


  1. I can say this from the bottom of my heart that I could NEVER judge a single one of my fellow bloggers. I just found your blog the other day and I enjoy reading what you have to share with us. This is a judgement free zone...if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm always willing to talk! :)

  2. OMG - when you don't post I seriously wonder where you are and if you are alright. When you write - you write from the heart and it's YOU - and that can never be wrong or bad....and we're all judged....not just you so join the club. Those of us who love you value YOU - all of you - the you that makes you unique. You are the only Kim who can blog like you do - and you add something to our family. We'll be your friends you miss...but you have to be willing to let us in - and then look out - we'll never leave! Smooches! Do not apologize for who Kim is - you are beautiful and so are any thoughts you write!

  3. You post any little thing you want - and honestly - while I've never experienced 'dumb' on your blog - that would be fine too!!!

    Because the reality is - we're probably all thinking it too :-)

  4. Kim I don't think you realise the impact you can have on some people. You are one of the first blogs I go and see when I log on, You are always very honnest in your blogs and I feel I can relate to you. I know if I had met you another way I could have got along with you. Don't think you are not worthy to have somebody to confide in. I am pretty sure I could talk for most bloggers there but I will just talk for myself I am here for you :)

    Have a good week end

  5. I too have to tell you that I could NEVER judge anyone. As you saw yourself, reading how other's struggle or do well makes us all think about our own inner struggles. My DH doesn't get it either and most of my close friends are into other things besides losing weight. So this blog world is my saviour. I also find I write in my personal journal (it is on my computer) but don't always post everything. You could try that, but at least let us know you are still alive every once in a while :-)

    I feel like the old one around here (at 56) but I so enjoy listening and hearing everything that you younguns have to say. You can't imagine my pride in knowing that you are doing something good for yourselves. I was there where you are years ago, but the band wasn't. I so wish I could turn back the clock and have a different last 30 years. But the next 30 for all of us will be a ball.

  6. Thanks for getting deep. This so isn't a place for judging. Quite the opposite. It's to feel less alone because we are really more alike than different. I'm shy and self conscince too. I always want approval. I think you are fantastic!!!

  7. I'm late to the blog here..but I have to say that I love everything you write and I never judge anyone, in fact, it seems the more honest they are for sharing any struggles or saying silly things endears me to them even more!!! I know what you mean about missing friends though. I also have a wonderful husband and even a sister to confide in, but Drazil totally and completely 'gets' me and that is priceless. If it makes you feel any better, we only re-connected about a year ago. I went almost my whole life without a BFF. I was 33 before I found her. Maybe, like me...the fact that now you realize how important one is, it will be that much sweeter when you find 'the one' for you.
    Until then, keep blogging and we are there for me we all 'get you'! We love you Kimmie McButterpants!!
    Big Hugs,

  8. I'm pretty new to this whole blogging thing and I can definitely empathize with fearing judgment. However, I've learned that this is such a supportive community and we are all so different in real life, but here we are all on the same journey!!
