And then I read back 40 entries of my LJ since I was already on the page. Oh my god, I was so broken and scared and angry all the time. I'm going to stop reading that, it's too embarrassing.

Hey, once you fill up the recent entries with training, it'll be fine :-)

(nice to see you posting again)

Thanks! I think I must have used LJ only for whinging at when I was feeling really bad for a couple of years. I can't have felt like that the whole time...can I? No, I spent at least some of it in a boat.

Perhaps this is testament to the power of rivers and cats.

I've been reading yours the whole time but un-lurking less often than I should.

Welcome back! What a coincidence -- I returned to LJ (after nearly five months away) on the same day as you! :-D

It's been great having you local. We should get together again when I'm back at the start of Spring semester.

Meanwhile, have an excellent holiday... and thanks for all the good chats, dinners, etc.!

I am so happy to see you less scared and broken as I know it didn't just happen, but you made it happen which is brilliant. Yay for more happier you on LJ now!

I think part of what's great about LJ is its usefulness as an outlet for processing when we feel broken and scared and angry, and God knows, if anyone had a reason to need that, you did! It's good to see you on here again :)

I don't think you should be embarrassed. I mean, I know the feeling, because I've done exactly the same (not on LJ, because that's not where I write that kind of stuff, but same principle). And it does feel awfully squirmy. But really, I think you should feel proud that despite everything you've managed to move on to not feeling like that all the time.

Oh! Hello. I thought you'd left LJ and forgotten about it. Happy Christmas!

I get that with my own LJ from a decade ago.

Different flaws, perhaps.

Nevertheless, it's a document, a record of my progress from there to here; and I take some care to ensure that it is safely archived.

We all put a bit of ourselves into LJ's past. Or a lot.
