What if you were able to say all the things you wish you could say…but know you shouldn’t?
What if I wrote it all here on this blog-all of “those” things?
You know the ones I’m talking about. Those things about the people in your life and the relationships that are tense?
Like anything about my family or my husband’s family in general.
Or the controversial things?
Like, I don’t get the fascination that some people have for Disneyland?
Not only would this blog be very, very active…it would also be bitter and judgemental.
And who wants to read someone else’s complaints. (Even if my complaints would be funny because some of the people I’m forced to deal with are just well, nuts).
One of the best pieces of advice I have heard about blogging was from Dooce. She said that we should never write something about someone that we wouldn’t want that person to read. Which, is just sage advice for life in general.
My last post “Catfish” stirred the pot and had some people thinking I would give them the time of day. Gag me and keep on livin’.
So I guess, that’s what writing a public blog is all about. If I’m not willing to talk about all those things I wish I could say I’ll be censoring how I really feel and polishing it so I don’t hurt feelings, or make relationships more tense.
But is that real?
