Today I came incredibly close to hitting the “Delete Blog” button on the settings page. It was incredibly tempting, but in the end I just couldn’t do it. There is so much of me wrapped up in these pages it would have been like erasing a part of me.
I think every blogger who writes anything of a personal nature, at one time or another, is faced the drama associated with having a family member or close friend find their blog. Of course, we all think that it’s not going to happen to us, that we are smarted than the others and we can stay anonymous. HA!
Four days ago my father found this blog. He read the whole thing and was hurt by some of the things I wrote. Fact is, I should have been a big brave girl and talked to him in person instead of venting to the internet. But it’s hard to break long engrained habits, and so I never did.
I’m sorry I hurt him. I’m sorry things have gotten so ugly. I only ever intended for this blog to be a personal space to vent about my daily life and find ways to deal with obstacles.
I’m sorry to my sisters and my mother for having made their lives a little bit more difficult.
