I’ve determined that I really like to compartmentalize my life.
I like to have separate friend groups, separate things I do with said groups (as I rarely mix them), separate places to do different activities, separate things I tell certain people but not others… the list goes on.
And I’ve also realized that I need separate places to share my writing and art. Venues separate from my family and friends.
I’m not a particularly “open” person in general. So when I briefly tried to share the occasional drawing on social media, where most people I know could see it, I couldn’t help but think to myself, “Wendy, why would you ever do this?? Abort mission!”
Long story short, I’ve decided to start another blog to share my (silly? comical? sometimes cynical?) drawings and maybe the occasional watercolor and I don’t know what else.
But the fact that this will be separate makes me feel better. Phew. (I know, I know, my neuroses are showing.)
My art blog is at here if you’re at all interested. I’ll be posting both here & there! 🙂
I’d love to know–
Does anyone else have the strong need to compartmentalize their life and keep things separate?
Thanks for reading!
