You can go ahead and consider today a non-post post. I’ve written before about how writing “controversial” posts wears me out emotionally and so I let the comments sit (yep, haven’t even read them all myself yet) and I tell myself I should wait to respond to them when I am feeling more like myself. Not like a raging emotional mess whose been told she will send her children to therapy and that her husband abuses her.
If I wrote a post about how I felt pretty, would you comment and say I looked ugly?
If I wrote about how wonderful my mom was, would you comment and say she was really a witch?
If I said I loved the way I look when I am pregnant, would you tell me I look fat?
Is there really anything wrong with a person writing about how they feel they are in a healthy, happy, safe, committed, loving and secure relationship? What good do naysayers feel they are doing by commenting and telling me how wrong I am? If I truly, genuinely feel I am happy right now, is attempting to destroy that happiness really going to make my life better?
I don’t write in this public space because I want all of you to agree with me, but what does writing the phrase “He does not love you!” really accomplish? Please. Just help me understand.
