How did I get here?

My brain is a never-ending conversation…my heart is full of joy…but both are trapped in an introverted personality. If you add to that, moving to a new country, becoming a wife and a mother, all in the same year at the age of 33…introverted is an understatement. I was invisible!!! I thought that opening a Facebook account would give me the opportunity to mend the gap between who I was and what people perceived of me in my new home. Indeed Facebook helped me build relationships with my new American family, community…but with a price tag. You see, being raised in the peaceful Portuguese islands of Azores, and having lived there most of my life, the word bullying was a very abstract concept to me. In time I discovered that in my new country bullying is a very real presence… and Facebook is its favorite playground. So I turned my back to Facebook, and my need to communicate brought me here – WordPress.com. Only in September of 2016 I started posting regularly and building connections. My community is yet a very tiny seed, but packed with rich flavors.

My advise?

I need more advise than I can give…

What I found it is bringing some bloggers to check my “space” is to respond to the WordPress Picture and Word Prompts.

  1. Beautifully written. Indeed, WordPress is a friendly, positive place to find friends. I have blogger friends to talk with in the morning, and others to talk with at night, because they are all over the globe. Congratulations for completing your acceptance. I understand what you meant about FB. I’m not active with it either. Keep blogging and you’ll find many friends! Keep in touch!

  3. Hi Hi Hi! Thanks so much for linking to my silly little shamble of a blog! I, uh, left a reply to your comment there, but since I’m new enough that I’m not sure how this works I might as well scribble something here too, if that’s ok.

    Basically, I have no idea what’s going on (both here, and in the world in general). Do I have to now reciprocate or start a list of my own or burn an incense candle to a dead ancestor or something? I’m so bad at this stuff!

    But I’m flattered nonetheless, so thanks again! 🙂

  4. I am laughing so hard right now!!! I think the “burning of incense candle to a dead ancestor” is absolutely mandatory!!! (just kidding and laughing still!!!).

    I think you already did all you needed to do: – You made me laugh again! 😉
