Protecting Feelings

There's something I want to blog about. SO BAD. It is potentially really exciting for someone I love and I want to share it. And record the events and accompanying thoughts and feelings. And squeal in delight. Publicly.

But I can't.

Unfortunately, there's someone who may be reading this blog who would be embarrassed at best and devastatingly hurt and angry at worst.

So now, here I am. Left with a decision. I don't enjoy hurting people, especially those I love. So I'll keep it to myself and try not to explode.

Cause, know, that'd be pretty messy. I'm not a skinny girl!

Why can't I just be a jerk and say what I think, regardless of potential repercussions, like so many other people in this world?! Why do I choose not to call 'em as I see 'em when doing so would surely be so liberating?!

Bah.

awww. This my dear is why you should come over to wordpress where you can password protect an individual post if you want to!! I hope we get to hear the news soon! :)

I understand. There are times that I would like to post a blog where I could choose who will be able to see it too.

I have this private blog called Diana Vents that I don't post on much, but there are times when I am just going to explode and I have to write it down. Hardly anyone knows about that blog. BUT there are times I just want to blog about something on my blog and I can't cause it's public...and many people stalk me!

As for your earlier post - I am really excited for your move! It sounds like a great decision for you guys, I hope your house sells soon! As for this post... this is exactly why I moved my blog. I wanted a space free and clear to air out all my thoughts and ramblings. But it is true, the fact that you have to balance your true emotional place with the feelings of those you care about. Maybe you can have password-protected entry? Best of luck, and IO hope you don't explode either :) Especially after all that work to clean your house...

I know how you feel! Don't forget that those you love would do the same for you if it was necessary! We all have issues we are/were sensitive about. Love you always.
