whatawaytoburn: ([Misc] Question)
So, I was bored and listening to podcasts and I've not done this in a while. I'm not a huge fan of labels but I understand that sometimes, they are...not necessary exactly but they make lives much easier.

So I thought I would open up a post for you to come out/list off your labels.

Mine are as follows:
Not alone in my head

I'm sure there are others that apply to me but those are the 9nes that for me to mind first. How about you?

So, I blame [community profile] kink_bingo for this but I was thinking about coming out. I'm out to my family and most of my friends on just about....everything but I know a lot of people aren't.

So, I thought maybe we could have a coming out party!

Come into this post and say what you are, who you are, what you like and what makes you happy. Tell us you're queer, tell us you're kinky, tell us you write things, tell us that you like to build model airplanes, tell us whatever you want and feel like you don't get to say enough.

Feel free to elaborate too, that's perfectly fine. Babble away on the topics you come up with and just....I don't know. Have fun with this.

And, if you don't want to come out openly, anon comments are on and you can drop us a few notes that way.
whatawaytoburn: ([Misc] Alone)
We all feel it, that sinking feeling that we're alone, that no one understands us, that we are the only person who can understand what we're going though.

But there are so many other beings in the world that feel something, if not the same, than similar.

I was thinking this could be a post where, if you're willing, you talk about those feelings, and other people chime in, letting you know that no, you're not alone.

Obviously, you don't have to join in if you don't want to but please, if you see something that resonates with you, say something.

Anyway, I'm going to wander off now and leave this here. I hope it helps and, if it turns out that this is something useful like the confessions post, I will think about putting it up on a regular basis.

As always, I have anon on and IP logging off so feel free to take advantage of that if you'd like.

So, on [personal profile] teigh_corvus's needs post, there seem to be a fair few people who well, need other people. They need cheerleaders, or they need people to talk to because they're a bit lonely or they just want to chat about religion/fandom/academia/whatever.

So I thought 'Why not make a post where people can find each other'.

This post is for either offering yourself up for talking to/friending/what have you or a place where you can look for people to talk to.

In short, it's a friending meme with no theme. I just...didn't quite think to phrase it as such until righ tthis second.

Pleasepleasplease feel free to signal boost and don't be scared iof bringing u something you want to talk about. THe only thing I ask that, if it's going to be triggery, you menti8on that it first.

I said I would put this up again since people seemed to use it a fair bit last time. The theme is the same, if you have something you need to say but can't say it for whatever reason, you can say it here, anon and find a place of safety to say it in.

No one will get judged for what they have to say, though I do ask that, if you have triggery topics, you mention them in the subject line.

So, [personal profile] dingsi made a an interesting post about OCs. Go over there and vote if this applies to you and, if you're not interested, be like me and poke at the results. it's terribly interesting.

Anyway, it got me thinking. There are those of us who identify as multiple, those of us who don't quite know what to identify as, those of us who simply identify as writers and I'm sure there are other things as well.

The point here is that we interact with our various characters in a way that most other people don'[. We talk to them, they talk back. We argue, get influenced, chat, get comfort, and a number of other things. Even if you only marginally identify with what I and [personal profile] dingsi have been talking about, this is for you.

Sometimes you want people to talk to about these things, you want to be able to exchange stories, bitch about what the kids are making you do, talk about anything you want but you don't have a safe space to do it in.

This is what this post is for. Anon is on and I ask that, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't bloody say it. If yo9u're not comfortable saying things under your journal or even anon and still want to take part, PM me and we can talk privately.

So, I am back to my chiming in posts because well, why not?

Today though, I am thinking about family. I'm thinking about the people you share blood with and the people you don't. I am thinking about the family you find versus the people who saw you grow up.

I don't know exactly what the question is, I don't know if I'm asking you to tell me about your families, however man of them you have, or if I'm curious which do you believe is stronger but I think I want a babble on family.

So ramble, kids, tell me about yours, tell me what makes them special, why you consider them family, what you would do for them, what they've done for you?

There's a whole slew of things that could be said, I'm sure and I don't really care what you say, just talk for a little while.
