It’s a funny thing. Not funny “ha ha”, but the other funny.
As the years go by, I am learning more and more about keeping my mouth shut. There are times when I have to bite my tongue in half, but I’m learning. For instance, I don’t write nearly half the things I want to write on my blog anymore. I have to think first. Sometimes I have to sleep on it first. Sometimes this new way of doing things online ticks me off. But, I understand now (call me a slow learner) that there are people out there reading who get downright mad at me for what I feel and think about a subject.
These same people want me to be accepting of their opinions and feelings though. And, I’m sure if they used an internet source as their creative outlet, they would feel and say what they wanted to feel and say and would feel imposed upon if I had the “nerve” to jump all over them for their feelings and sayings.
I’m just sayin’.
It’s ok though. I am learning through this season of censorship. I’m sure there is more than one lesson in it too. See, I can’t help it if people read my blog (for the most part). It’s open to the public. And, as much as blog stats used to thrill me, I seriously don’t care anymore how many people are reading. What I wonder time and again is who. Who is reading? So very many in anonymity until one of you decides to surface and explode. Those are the times when I seriously consider closing my blog to the public. But, I don’t and I don’t think I ever will.
I have met some of you and I happen to like you.
So, my dear naysayers and owners of public temper tantrums and delusional thoughts about your role in my life, I will not quit for now. If I ever do decide to quit, you won’t be the reason. My advice to you, and I’ve said this before, is to find your own life and your own resource for your own thoughts. I wish you well. But, please, for the life of all that is good and wholesome… leave me alone.
