If you secretly publish your guts on the internet, they will eventually be discovered. I have nothing to be ashamed of, in the sense that I have only spoken the truth. However, I feel rather sickly in my stomach, because I am afraid of the pain I may have caused, and moreover, of any potential loss of friendship.
And I am sure that other intrepid explorers will uncover me soon enough, if they haven't already. To be honest, I have every intention of continuing writing, as this little space is my emotional outlet.
