Hello blog. Long time no talk.
I just want to say something simple, I think. Thank you. To everyone who showed up today to call me, email me, tweet me, leave me a facebook message, or give me a real life hug and some cake.
Thank you for caring about me. Thank you for being there.
I'm going through some tough times. I need every one of you.
Sometimes I lose faith in all of this social media. Sometimes I think it's all fake, that none of you are real, that none of you care. I get a terrible sense of going it alone.
Yet I keep coming back. I don't know why. I don't know why I love social media so much. But I do.
And today, as the happy birthday wishes started in the early morning, and continued and continued through the day, as the number of wishes continued to climb, I felt strangely comforted.
You matter. Look, I'm a mess. I know it. I don't know where I am going, or how I'm going to get there. But some of you love me anyway, and I love you back.
Maybe it's just that basic. I'm really glad you exist. I'm glad I exist.
I'm glad I was born.
