You Think You Know
I started writing a detailed line by line response to a comment left about yesterday’s post, but I decided it wasn’t worth my energy. Instead I’ve chosen to just delete the person’s comment from the archives. I initially shied away from doing that as I’ve always welcomed feedback from readers. But there comes a point, when the feedback is simply too hurtful and without merit to let stand. So let me say again, just because you’ve read my blog for some time, don’t assume you know me – particularly if you have not spent any time with me in the real world. What is written here is but a small snippet of my reality. It is heavily edited and almost always paints me in a positive light. This is not always the case with the extended cast of characters in my world. Truth be told, most of my recent days/months/years have been filled with joy. I have a job that affords me a comfortable life. I have an extended group of real world friends and have decent relationships with most of my family members. Now I have a boyfriend who adores me and up until this weekend had done nothing to cause me distress in any way. So when I have a day and/or days of sadness as most people do from time to time and choose to write about them, do not view this as an opportunity to knit pick at my life and make mean and nasty comments – particularly when you don’t have a complete set of facts. Ask me to clarify and explain what I’m feeling. Leave constructive and helpful feedback. Better yet leave and come back on another day. But do not come here and make hurtful generalized statements without any basis in fact unless you yourself have a perfect storybook life.
