Honesty is social currency
Mark Pilgrim and Michael Barrish are two of my favorite bloggers. They share intimate stories and secrets with courages honesty, risking much in the process. Some wonder for what purpose, I don't. Their honesty isn't being offered as a void trade. It's social currency that buys the respect and aspiration of strangers all around the world. Strangers like me.
I wish I too could overcome the barrier of pride and fear holding back honesty.
