Writer's Block: Dear LiveJournal

How long have you been on Livejournal? What major life changes has LiveJournal witnessed?

In the year that I’ve been on Livejournal, the biggest life change for me has been learning to let go of the fear of “putting myself out there” on Livejournal.

It was so much easier to remain hidden.

That's certainly a big change =)

When I first started playing Rugby I was terrified out of my mind, and before matches I still shake with fear. But the thing is, at the end of the day it is much better to say you've conquered your fears than to let them rule you.

Is this a change online? or are you less afraid in real life as well? =)

I would never have guessed that you had such fear!! Good for you, accomplishing that in such a splendid way! LJ would be a poorer place without you,

I suppose the difference between someone labeled as a coward and someone labeled as a lion is that the lion faces his fears and the coward runs away.

Thank you for that =)

"At the end of the day it is much better to say you've conquered your fears than to let them rule you."

That is a great, great thing to remember.

God began to convict me that I needed to be so filled with love and compassion for people that I would be willing to get up each day and share the hope of Jesus Christ - even at the risk of looking foolish in the eyes of others.

This crosses over into real life as well.

I am really grateful for your sharing and witness. Though I have known the Lord all my life, sometimes it felt like a very lonely walk. I've admired your courage and boldness, never dreaming that you were fearful! You have encouraged me more than you know. Thank you.

I'm a little more afraid to share things in real life, but then again I walk around with fake mustaches penciled on my lip. So I think I'm just being lazy x]
