Blogging as therapy - Old friends

Ultimate Blog Party 2010


Blogging can be therapy. Sometimes I don't know what I am feeling until I am actually blogging about it.

For example, have you ever lost touch with a dear friend? You think about that person and imagine how great it would be when you reconnected. I recently had that happen. I found an old dear friend after almost 20 years. I was so excited because we were so close. We talked for an hour on the phone and it was great. There have been a few emails and online chats, but I don't seem to be getting the same enthusiasm in return.

I bring up the special moments we shared and she doesn't even remember us being at the place, to say nothing of the special moment. It is such a let down, that at times I wish it was still just a wish to hope for.

  5. Came here from the blog party!

    I know the feeling, sometimes the memories are better than the reality. I recently reconnected online with a old friend who I was so close with but we've just gone separate directions and it's just not there anymore.

  7. Stopping by from UBP. I know exactly what you mean. I reconnected with a friend last summer. We were so close growing up, and I was so excited to find her, but she didn't feel the same.

  8. Hi Laura! Love your site! I started blogging in 2006 when I became a full time caregiver for my mom. It has certainly been therapy for me, writing about all the emotional things I deal with as a caregiver. UBP

  12. Hi there. Just stopping by from the UBP. I also use blogging as a form of therapy. First it seems to be cheaper than a therapist, and it is always there when I need it, no appointment necessary!
