Just Say It

Some Deep Some Shallow July 25, 2009

Filed under: Life... The Way I See It — candidchatter @ 11:56 am

There is a lot spinning in my brain. I want to write about all of it. But, in order to protect my emotional well-being, I won’t. I still have that fear of being ripped a new one in the outside world for what I write in the Internet world. I’ll eventually overcome that. I am not very good with criticism so it is hard work. A relationship that is important to me has been damaged in the crossfire and the other party is not willing to forgive… yet. So, I keep certain things to myself. I miss the open book though. I like to express myself fully so this sort of censorship is confining.

Even so…

There are bigger social issues a-brewin’. Pornography. Slavery. Adoption. Christian living. Friendship. Marriage. Parenting.

To name a few.

I have learned to try and sort my thoughts out before I display them here. I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now. I don’t feel like such a naive beginner any longer. I’ve ridden the highs and experienced the lows. I’ve offended people. I’ve made them laugh. I’ve made them think. I’ve made them angry. I’ve won. I’ve lost. I’ve learned.

I have learned.

Welcome back to my Candid Chatter if you’re a seasoned reader.
Welcome for the first time if you just popped in on the scene.

Soon, the debate will begin.

    You are an inspiration, you really are. I could hug you for these last few posts (in a completely chaste way, and only if your husband was present and consented, of course!). I’ll get back to my writing too (ehm, on Monday). I don’t have your excuses.

    Ivan: I have missed you. Seriously. How are you doing? LOL about the hug. If I ever meet you in person, a hug is in order. 🙂

  3. My sentiments exactly Heidi. I am soooo glad you are back and look forward to your posts. As for the hug…I think it is in Aladdin where the genie says, “Group hug.” 🙂

  4. I already said I was glad you were back! Your “conserve” post had me slightly worried but it’s good to hear that things will get back to some kind of normal (“normal”?) around here!!

    (Honestly, it’s ridiculous how glad I am to have “met” you…and it feels like I’d followed you such a short time before you ‘quit’ blogging.. and here you are again! yay!)

    Heidi, thanks for asking. I am mostly OK 😉 I need to cultivate some good habits.
