Should We Get So Personal Here?

I was thinking last night while tossing and turning about everything that is going on – in my life, others close to me and the world of course. And while hyperventilating and missing a few important individuals in my life, I got to thinking about – just how much of our own personal s*** should we be dishing out in a public forum.

I mean some folks may appreciate the sharing,  while others take offense and then a few may feel there is just too much info being shared.  So, how do we pace our writings or decide on the best way to discuss the random thoughts going through our minds and just putting them out there…honestly I don’t even know why anymore?

Perhaps it’s the helplessness we feel, or I should just be talking about myself – when some things I don’t know how to handle anymore or the way I thought was best to handle them – isn’t really the better way, I feel the need to voice it somewhere. I don’t know, maybe hoping there is someone willing to listen… then again, or at the end of the day, what is all the listening going to change? The stuff I go through, like others, is my own personal craziness. Things I need to stay up nights occasionally to work through in my head – not necessarily to fix, but to find the means to cope mostly.

So…here we are.

Someone Who Meant So Much

I was watching a television show last night where a couple who’d been reading a newspaper together in bed, noticed an article about an old flame of the wife. The husband asked her if she ever thought about him, and she quickly said no – lying naturally while the scene panned to a decade earlier when she and he, the old flame, were at a cross-road about their affair. You see, she was engaged at the time to her now husband…

Reminding Yourself Everyday…

I used to think rejection was the worst of feelings – now I think they are the best thing ever that could happen – because with all the rejection I’ve received in my lifetime, I have grown so much and I am the better version of what I would have been otherwise:
