So I would now like to take the time to get those who have already started following my blog a bit more familiar with who I am.
My name is Tiahara (pronounced tee-HAIR-ruh), but I also like to go by Tia for short. People primarily describe me as shy and quiet. I have a tendency to just stay to myself majority of the time, so I don’t have many friends. Constantly keeping these walls up, I often find it very difficult to really open up to others and let them in. Not particularly because I’m afraid of getting hurt, because I know that hurt is inevitable and part of everyone’s life at one point or another. But I do admit that I can sometimes feel a little isolated when it comes who I am and my life, I guess you could say. I’m not your typical teenager. There are certain things I have yet to experience, and to me, it feels as though everyone else around me is so much more interesting.
However, at the end of the day, I know that I do matter and that I’m here for a reason. I want 2016 to be the year I start putting myself out there more. I want to hold back less. I want to stop pushing those who I want to be the closest to away. Overcoming my shyness isn’t going to happen overnight or anytime soon. It’s going to be a process, a journey. And I would like to begin that here, with this blog.
The name, simplyexpressingme, is very much self-explanatory. Here I’ll be writing about personal things that will vary, from something I’m experiencing or going through in life, to just simply what I may have on my mind at a certain point in time. I’ll be posting little extra things in between as well. Also, I would like to just note now: Everything I put on here is 100 percent honest and me. You could say this blog is, in a way, like my diary, that’s voluntarily out in the open for everyone to read.
BIG thank you to y’all who are staying tuned. I welcome you, and look forward to sharing myself with you all.
