So if you have browsed through my blog or various social media pages, you will be aware that I am anonymous! You know I’m a girl, but you don’t know who I am, where I come from, what I look like, how old I am. Sorry guys, you are completely in the dark. However, this is no random decision. In fact, I have a few reasons why I have chosen this secrecy, which I am going to share with you, for in case anyone was wondering…
- Comfort and confidence
It sounds weird, but knowing that nobody know who I am gives me a sense of comfort, leading to confidence; I can write some crazy-ass stuff and nobody will ever know who wrote that! The fact is that I am hiding behind the safety of my screen… unfortunately that phrase gives off the completely the wrong vibe because a lot of people who hide are doing dodgy things, which FYI I completely am not!!!
- Still thinking
I love my friends and family to pieces, but for now this is something that I would be happier to keep under wraps. As I said in my first ever blog post, I am writing random things for random people to see, and I haven’t really come to terms with it! It is a weird (but incredibly fun) thing to do. I am not sure who will be against, it or who will support it (as there will definitely be a bit of both) but in all honesty, I am not ready to find out.
- Hate on the internet
At this point in time, I do not think I could deal with personal abuse from total strangers. I am not naive- I know that there will always be people who disagree with things and also people who ‘hate’ for no reason, but hating on my ideas and hating on me are completely different things and just for now, I want to avoid the latter at all costs
- No prejudice
This is more of a happy point compared to the previous (YAY!) Because you don’t know anything about me, no prejudice will come into play when reading my thoughts or opinions, or deciding whether or not to follow, or if to comment etcetera, etcetera. You can form your own, unbiased opinions on me based on the content on my blog, which is FULL of the real me!!!
I am literally a blank page- you CAN’T judge me from the cover
- I care too much
Sure, I could overlook all of the above points. Turn around and say “Who cares what they think? I’m doing it for myself.” But (another fun fact about me) I care too much! I am a sensitive and observant person. If a friend is upset, I know straight away. If somebody gives me a strange look a worry about what is wrong and overthink the situation until I am in a tizzy- most of the time it was nothing! It is a fact about me that will wear off overtime, but always be present in my personality- so cannot be ignored.
AND THOSE ARE MY TOP REASONS WHY I AM TO BE KNOWN AS ANONYMOUS 😉
You may be able to tell that I am young and still have a lot of growing up, ‘finding myself’ and confidence building to do- I feel like there were a lot of unsure quotes in the post (I’m not ready, can’t deal with it.) And I do hope you take it that way- as growing up. Because reading it myself I can see a girl with no self-confidence and low self-esteem writing this post, which is not who I am.
Sorry that this is not the most exciting post in the world, but I am sure that a few people would be interested, so thank you for bearing with me. You might even be able to relate to some of these points away from the internet/ blogging world.
One day I will be ready to overcome my listed points and share to the world who I truly am!!!
But for now, it is love Anon xxx
All is Good
