There is a blog called Professor B Worm. The writer of that blog is Charlie.
Charlie has written a few posts that moved me to tears and that helped me face my own childhood trauma more honestly and easily. I say easily because by reading some things that Charlie wrote from his heart, I would have to remind myself to breathe and that this was someone else writing, not me. So as I would read some of his writing, I could understand his way of working on his personal recovery and it was a good example to me.
Blogs are written for so many reasons. I believe that when someone writes a post that obviously came from the depths of their soul, and some people read that post and gain something from it, then the pain it took to write the post was a good thing. Good for the writer to aid in healing and good for the reader if it is therapeutic.
Not many books or blogs reach my inner being and grab hold. This post did that to me.
My Hubby says that it is because Charlie is such an excellent writer. That is true, he is. Beyond that, if you really read every word, the outcome is restorative. It takes so much strength of character to write deep down honest truth. When someone opens up to others this way they are to be respected. Honesty is seldom important in big business or corporations or politics and sometimes in families. I have to speak up here and say that honesty to me is welcome, necessary, and respected. Please tell me what you think of this post at Professor B Worm.
