Your writing in posts like this, is so real, honest, and vivid, that I feel like the words of your thoughts freed themselves, became entities, came out of your head, literally walked in front of you, and came in front of me — the reader — . In my house. Filling up the whole distance.

Raw, and not raw simultaneously. Because this …rawness is the courageous exposure of thoughts that the majority of people wouldn’t dare to express externally, though they have thought the same way many times, being afraid of ruining the …comme il faut mentality. But, just because these are thoughts lots of us have done, the rawness brings up the sense of familiarity “in” the reader.
