Dearest Brunette Self, will you be my vault friend...

Mama's Losin' It

WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROMPT:
Describe a time when you had difficulty communicating with someone who speaks a different language than you.

Photobucket

I have wonderful people in my life. I'm richly blessed. But sometimes I feel like the language of the deepest part of my soul is one that no other person on this earth would understand. I feel like there are certain things I will never, ever be able to communicate. So I was thinking--today in fact, before I read this prompt--that since I alone understand the language of my soul perhaps I should write down my deepest thoughts, address them to myself, read them then burn them in what could potentially be a very therapeutic ceremony.
Or...
I could just find a therapist and skip the whole writing and burning part all together.
Fabulous.

What I really need is a vault friend.
Are you a vault friend or do you just have to spill the beans?
Mail me your credentials and we'll talk.

I've tried writing to myself and then destroying the evidence. Yeah. I've still got all of it. I just can't bring myself to destroy my "masterpieces." I'm such a nerd.

I'm definitely not a secret teller. That can get you into some trouble!

I need a therapist! Right now I just talk to myself in the car while I am driving home from work and guess what? I give myself TERRIBLE advice!

wow.. that is one hot picture of you. I like the letter idea. It costs a lot less than a therapist :)

I am so NOT a vault friend. I'm more like a bullhorn friend. I try not to be, but I can't help it. When I know I can't tell anybody I tell my baby. He is still young enough to not repeat it.

I have done the writing stuff and never got around to burning. I'm a vault

I can be a vault friend...but I slip up all the time!

My friends actually call me the Vault. It takes a lot for me to spill the beans!

Stopping by from Mama Kat's.

I really try to be a vault friend. I feel like such a schmuck when I crack.

Never been tempted to write to myself. Talk to myself, yes. Write, no.

I also am not one to disclose secrets - I have too many that have accumulated over the years to even contemplate letting them loose. {*grin*]
