Friends know me, you know details.
My friends and many associates know my background, like an outline.
You Sixers know more pain and detail than I’m often willing to reveal to the people who are closest to me. There is something cathartic to writing it and some things are too painful or raw to say out loud.
It is not usual for me to go into detail with them about my past, something about the pain reflected in a loved ones face makes it unbearable, even with some who have been in those moments with me.
It is odd, there are things I've posted on Smith that I would not say or write anywhere else.
