    One of My Fears

    i am always conscious of how difficult it is to express what i am feeling in typed words on a screen. i usually reword my comments several times before i hit "submit". sometimes even after several drafts it doesn't feel right, so i just won't comment lest the author of...

    It Doesn't Matter? It Does Matter?

    I am constantly rewording my comments to people. I normally add in words that don't really need to be there just so it can't possibly be taken the wrong way. And even then I worry! >.< Quite often I actually stop writing my comment and delete it all together...

    The Power Of The Word

    I make it a point to be very conscientious of the way I go about saying or writing things to people.  Typically, when I write a comment I will read it over a couple of times afterwords and look for the "holes" in it.  Many people I comment on are total strangers to me...
