I think we all fall into that category at one point or other…it’s not so bad as long as it’s balanced I think — or you have the awareness that you’re just creating more of a divide between your real self and your online self.

Like you say, writing from the heart is a sure way of finding more of your real self. You could even use that on your travels, kind of like Jack Sparrow’s compass in Pirates of the Caribbean — if you’re not aware Jack’s compass only points to what he wants most in the world, which, I think it can be said, is where your heart points if you’re able to feel it.

Perhaps the greatest gift that we can give to each other is a greater understanding of ourselves.
