Censoring myself and my blog

Several weeks ago, I read from one of the national dailies that writing anonymously is a form of cowardice. I told myself I am not a total coward. If someone is really, really interested, I could be found.

Of course, it would take a lot of effort compared to having my name simply plastered on my profile. But I have reasons to be partly anonymous. Social Anxiety Disorder? Somewhat. But the most is the fear of friendship or any relationship that may develop from my blogging. Totally illogical I know.

Despite all that, I hope I am not as irresponsible.

And as you can see, there are no negative comments on my blog. I publish only the positive. (There are barely any comments to my blog to publish.) They’re as anonymous as my blog. So you may say what are they worth in the end? They don’t try to take people down. On the contrary, they try to prop up someone anonymous.

I am grateful.
