Pour Your Heart Out With Me

About once a week, I tend to really pour my heart out to you about something that is important to me or that I feel really strongly about.

I've written about marriage, religion, anger, the struggles I've had with my middle son, body image, and sex,   just to name a few.
And I love your support on those posts.
I love how many of you end up saying "Me, too!"
I love having a place to pour my heart out.
So, I'm actually going to start my own blog carnival in case any of you want to pour your hearts out, too.
Here are the Rules:

Pour Your Heart Out

Write a post from the heart.

Something that has been weighing on you.

Something you feel passionately about.

Something you've been wanting to talk about.

A cause, a memory, a belief, a world view.


I don't want to assign you a topic because I really want this to be from your heart.

Though, if you are stumped, read some of the posts that are linked, and get ideas from there!

Grab my new button for your post and link up!

I hate that I even have to say this, but, whether you are participating or just reading, please keep in mind that the people linking really are sharing something from the heart. So, please, BE RESPECTFUL. We might not agree with each other, but we can all accept someone's right to have a different opinion than we do and NOT attack someone because of this. Play nice. :)

I love this Shell. There are a couple things I would like to talk about but didn't know how to throw it out there. This might be that opportunity. I have something this Wednesday but the following Wednesday I am in. :)

Great idea, and like you said- whether you agree or not, know that it is an issue close to others hearts, and that we can all learn from eachother and other's points of view.

What a fanastic idea! I'll have to think of something worthy of a heart pouring before then!

Thanks for your comment, Shell.

That's a wonderful idea! I don't know that I'll link up but I'll definitely read some. That's what happens when your mom and in-laws read your blog, you can't always pour your heart out like you want:( Thinking about making myself a secret venting blog that no member of my family knows about.

I love your disclaimer at the bottom to remind people to be respectful. Well, I love it and I hate it. It's ridiculous that you have to remind people to be respectful of feelings.

I will enjoy reading these posts. I enjoy your posts most when you are sharing your heart!

I'm glad you fixed the button, I was coming back to tell you about it and there it was! I have it up on my list of meme's.
And if you want to join another, I have a new one for mommy moment Monday's.

I really enjoy heartfelt posts, and I agree with Brandee/Think Tank Momma....sad that we have to remind people, but I do hope everyone will be respectful of one another.

I will have to start thinking about this one...and maybe see some of other people's stuff to help inspire me....

I did it! i posted one! I'm not feeling all warm and fuzzy about it though! I'm not one to post from my heart or anything "personal" on my blog or Facebook (except my personal one), or twitter. Just not something i like doing. but people keep insisting i should do it more. So i guess this is a way i can! Thanks!
