Pssst, I have a secret
Palagay ko ito ang rason kung bakit may mga alias ang mga bloggers. Subconsciously we all want to be someone different and better than our real selves. So we hide our complete identity, hide our faults and for fleeting moments in a virtual world, play the role of a person our subsconscious wants us to be. Whether we’re aware of it or not, we only project a side of us in our writings. More often it is the better side that we expose.
Now it’s time for me to reveal a secret. Hindi ako si Ka Uro. Ka Uro is only one side of me. It is not the complete me. The complete me can be quite different. In person, I am not as fun and entertaining. Sabi nga ng misis at anak ko, masungit daw ako. Some may even find me unsociable and boring.
I hope you keep this in mind, because in the future if ever I turn down any invitation to meet with anyone, please don’t be offended nor think of me as snub. Hindi kasi talaga ako mahilig sa mga sosyalan. Sa mga party, di mo ako mapapakanta ng My Way, o bumangka sa kwentuhan. Sa kainan na lang pwede pa.
In the meantime, in this virtual world we interact, Ka Uro can be confident, funny, sociable and entertaining. That’s the beauty of it. Anonymity allows us to be anyone we want to be. Liberating it is. So those of you who are thinking of going into blogging, what are you waiting for? Join in. Unshackle your inner self.
Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free. - CHUANG-TZU
