I think its easy to judge. I certainly leave myself open to that and honesty has a price. But at the end of the day, moving forward in life, appreciating the moment, and helping others has been the goal of my blog and I hope its achieving its goal.

I find that most people, also, are not perfect and can relate to admitted imperfections in others.

“I think it’s easy to judge. I certainly leave myself open to that and honesty has a price.”

You’re not leaving yourself open to judgment when you entirely delete a blog post about your “confessions.” You’re running from it. But hey, making up for the past is for suckers. It’s all about the good things that you’re gonna do later. Be sure to let us know how that turns out.
