Got into a bit of a tif this last week with ‘the boy’, as he told me that he didn’t enjoy reading me online and that he wouldn’t date my online ‘voice’.
You can imagine, I took that a little personally, but once I calmed down, it got me thinking. There are times when I don’t like my online voice, when I find that it gets a little shallow. You know what I’m talking about – all glitz, glam, sparkle and shine. That’s not me, but it is easy to write and provides a simple standby when my life gets too busy.
Whys it been busy? Because I’ve got a new fellow in my life that I’m spending the time that normally goes into writing with. A little ironic really. He starts reading, as he starts to date me, and I neglect my voice in lieu of spending time with him. No wonder he doesn’t like my online voice. ‘She’ hasn’t been me this past little bit, but rather a shallow substitute filling in for me in my absence. I plan on rectifying that. My sincerest apologies.
PS Thanks Jennifer! Talking this through in this past weeks coaching session, really helped me to process this, think about it rationally and reflect on myself. Meant when I talked to him about it, I could talk calmly and rationally and hear what he was saying.
