Blog Vs Story
Advantage of writing a blog is that you don't need a special friend or a confidante to share your experience with. You can just write your story and not be bothered by the reactions of the reader. Just close comments, if you so choose.
On the other hand, 'The Storyteller' may sometimes have to contend with the harsh words of the critics.
Then again there are some persons that do not have that gift of writing or converting ones experience to words, then a good friends ear comes in handy.
A friend that can listen, accept and only ask limited questions.
Problem is, where does one find a so called friend with those qualities?
Most so called acquaintances/friends would profess to having those qualities but are in fact not always honest of their true intentions.
Knowledge is power and through the years I have learnt that most people only gather info for their own personal gain.
Real friends -in my opinion- are those made from childhood, those first friends made in primary school and remained friends through to adult life. At times situations can also produce a true friend.
Unfortunately many of us just don't have that kind of friends due to all types of valid reasons.
Maybe I have this all wrong.
