I alologize for all of the "thoughts" posts I've been doing lately but this is an entirely new style of writing for me. Before my break I revealed very few details of myself in my writing. Things were almost all cold, clinical analysis or classification, defining words and concepts amd the like. "From my experiences" was the line I would use to imply I was talking about something I had experienced.
This has changed since my return. I am injecting a lot of personal experience and contexts. It feels different. It feels more personal. At the same time I feel extremely exposed and vulnerable after completing posts like the last one.
I wrote about so many things from 2010-2012 that there aren't many "new" topics for me to write about. If I rehash something it's almost always inferior to my first exploration of the topic. In some ways making things more personal feels new, even when talking about the same old things. In other ways I feel like it reduces the weight of the concept by making it my personal special case in that way.
I don't know really, I guess I'm just feeling self-conscious, exposed, and vulnerable.
