“Why letting yourself feel broken is the key to feeling whole”

“Why letting yourself feel broken is the key to feeling whole”

I’ve chosen to highlight this amazing article as a great use of social media for a few reasons.  First off, this article discusses some really sensitive points, we all deal with stress and trauma at some point in our lives, yet we hide it.  Or feel uncomfortable when other people discuss these topics.  This is a way to “break the ice”, and social media is a great way to discuss these kind of topics where both the writer and reader can feel less exposed.  We find someone who understands how we are feeling, and maybe it might prompt us to be more honest and open about how we are feeling.  Like “The Zen of Social Media, 2013” says it educates, but in a way that is safe and trusting (page 20).

It is also beautifully written, but short and concise.  The reader isn’t overwhelmed with a lot of detail or personal information, but they still understand what the writer is trying to convey.  It looks professional, and it’s “selling” the idea that we need to be ok with negative feelings.

The website itself is designed well, it’s not one writer contributing, but many writers, who provide enough content to keep the blog active and interesting.

Personally, this blog really hit home, and is a great way to inform friends and family about some of the issues I go through.
