Confused

The one thing that I love about my blog is the fact that I feel that it's a safe place for me to work through my feelings and emotions. It hasn't always been that way and it's just been in the last year that I have felt that I can be completely honest here.

I have something that I want to vent about and try to work through my feelings, but I wonder if I should really do that. For me just putting it out there allows me somehow to get over it and get past it. But I sit and worry because the person that I need to vent about may or may not read this blog. I am still trying to figure out if this person reads my blog, but have not had any confirmation. My gut is telling me that even if this person is not reading then someone close to them is reading and passing on to her what I am writing about.

But this is my blog and I should be able to put the truth out there even if this person would not want me to talk about it. And the feedback I get from all my readers really does help me to sort through things.

I really don't know what to do....

My advice...is vent. But up the comment moderation of course so you don't have to deal with any negative responses......BUT you are right it's your little corner of the world and you can't let the "morons" out there get to you.

As I've learned this week you need take negative stuff and just brush it off.

I say put the truth out there and let the chips fall where they may.

Remember: "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set ye free".

It's your blog you should be able to write whatever you want. But i understand about wanting to keep some things private. Its up to you, you know we are all here for you know matter what

Put it out there! It's your blog and you should get to do with it anything you want. If they don't like reading it then they can click on another site. Or talk to you about it.

I agree with everyone its your blog you should write about whatever you want to,look at it this way it may save you big bucks not to pay for a therapist

Yep, it's your blog. And if what you say is truth, there is nothing to worry about. I agree with Jaded Mama that you might want to put up the comment moderation for a while, just in case.

One other thought ... if you're not comfortable writing about it here, there might be a reason. If you vent before you're ready, it might not be helpful. Think it over and know exactly why you are uneasy, then follow your head, 'cause your head is a smart one.

Oh, another thing, you can block comments on the post altogether, also. That would avoid nasty feedback.

I agree with everyone else. It's YOUR blog, you can do as YOU want.
