I took down Forgiveness.
My blogs are about me. I wrote Forgiveness about the biggest hurts of my life. But someone thought I had “really lost my marbles” and said I shouldn’t “wonder why my life is where it is”. This single person’s reaction was really, I thought, over the top.
I purposely do not identify people in my blogs, however blogs are not meant to upset anyone. I consider them more to be emotional regurgitation – a way to clean out my mind, a way to communicate and hear from others who feel as I do, get some feedback.
There are a very few people, OK only one actually who has said so, who don’t like anything I have written. And I don’t know why this person continues to read my stories. When I’m pushing buttons in the car looking for something to entertain me, if I come upon Rush, I keep on going. I don’t watch Fox News. Not interested at all. I don’t watch The Bachelor or that Donald Trump show. Not interested. I hear a show called Honey Boo Boo beat the RNC last week. I did not contribute to either’s ratings. I would hope the few people who read my blog would not continue to return to it if they weren’t enjoying it. That wouldn’t make sense.
Now on to Puppies and Kittens. I don’t want to write about them. I want to write about me. My good bad happy sad colorful boring exciting messy silly serious busy life. Maybe I need to work on a memoir instead. But I’ve always considered my blog posts pre-work, if you will, for a memoir.
Anyhow, as I said, I took her down. Thank you to all of you who are so encouraging to me. It means a lot. And makes me happy, happier.
