By nature, I am a Geek, I come by it honestly. I can sometimes get over zealous and excited about the things I am interested in. They say Geeks like their stuff and for me stuff is a wide array of people, places, things and beliefs that I want to share with all. The things I am passionate about I want others to be passionate about too.
That is where my idealism comes into play. I am a bleeding heart idealist who dreams of a time when things are right in the world in my mind. My experiences in life facing exclusion from being a part of the “in crowd” has led me to want to be sure others are in the community.
I am a extrovert and I enjoy expressing myself, that’s kind of the reason I have a blog. It’s that desire to express yourself that gets one into situations where people aren’t sure what to think of you. Not everyone knows how to handle me at times and that is frustrating.
My big ole bleeding heart can get the best of me. Marching to the beat of my own drummer can be a lonely experience. There can be some moments where you feel quite alone. Everyone wants to be accepted but when they aren’t it can have its own problems.
It’s good for like minded people to gather together. Having a supportive community can help us feel acceptance, encouragement and purpose. There are so many people who are so alone because they don’t feel there is anyone in life who knows what they are going through. Acceptance in life means taking a road less traveled so to speak.
