It’s true. I am afraid to speak. The image I posted as the header to my sight is not an accident or a random selection from google because I thought It’d be cool. I chose this one on purpose. I decided to express the fact that I am actually afraid. 100% afraid to speak my mind in a society that is so ready to jump down anyone’s throat simply for speaking their mind.
Previously, I had decided that I’d limit my online presence. But that’s a fallacy. It won’t work in the end. My presence, here or not, reflects my intents and my values. So I may as well have control over them.
The truth is, I shouldn’t be afraid. I have been far too long scared of my actions on the internet. But no more. The internet is not a place for me to be afraid, but a place for me to nurture myself, and hopefully others. It is my tool, and I’m going to use it.
So here is me, ready to speak all about the world and my place in it. If the world can’t handle it, then it’ll just have to educate itself instead, and I can help!
