on making my entries more personal

I was sitting on the couch earlier this morning thinking.  Thinking about how I had written a couple of weeks ago in this blog that I wanted my entries to be more personal, and show more of my feelings.  I wondered if I was accomplishing this.  I talked to somebody yesterday who told me she felt I didn't write about my feelings in my blog.  Ouch.  That hurt. 
 
I guess there's a reason.  It's because of certain people that read.  Okay, that's all I am going to say about that.  Except this.  I can't let myself worry about that.  I must be free to say exactly what I want.  I talked to John about it, and he said I should say exactly what I want to say in my blog.  And that I shouldn't feel intimidated about saying things in it, because people might judge me, or they might not understand me, or they might not like me, or whatever.  Who cares.  I can write whatever I want.  As long as I don't set out to hurt anybody intentionally.   
 
Having John's support in this matter feels really good.  I can't let my life be run by others who may judge what I write, and if I feel I should say something, from now on I am going to say it.  
 
So from now on I am going to try to make my entries more personal.  And I'll also try to share more of my feelings.  Thanks for staying with me all this time.  
 
And thanks to that person who showed me the way!  ;)
 
Love you all,   Krissy

    you should say what you want and/or feel Krissy.. it's your journal.  No matter what you will have your friends by your side.. those that cause you harm or upset you are probably not friends to begin with.  Trying to please all is hard to do and impossible, so please you :)  Hugs to you

  2. You have shared all the ups and downs of yours and Johns illnesses,  that is pretty personal.  I know some have problems with others about what they write, but I've been blessed not to.  I don't think I've many readers so maybe that's a good thing.  I write the blog for my family anyway.  'On Ya' - ma

  3. Write however you "feel" you should...somedays can be more "personal", some maybe not..."freeing" yourself is what's important!

  4. good for you Krissy. Yes, you can write what you like, if others do not like it then that is their problem. They do not have to read it.  God bless

  6. I know what you mean Krissy, showing your feelings on a blog has good points and bad points.  When I was going through breast cancer I put my feeling down in my blog about my SIL coming to clean my house and cook.  At the time I was feeling bad and it turn when she read it it made her feel bad.  She learned I had my good days and bad days.

  7. I have always been plagued by my mother telling me never to write anything that I wouldn't want to share with the world. I quit writing for years and I was good at it back then. Now I just don't want to hurt anyone but I want to say what I feel- Its a juggling act! Dannelle

  8. Hi Krissy,

    I agree with everyone else!

    This is your blog- you are a sweet person - you'd never intentionally hurt anyone but that is what journaling is for - to write Your feelings down.
    Journalling to me is a way of expressing myself - and its theraputic to me. If somebody does't like what you have to say - well that is their problem not yours.

    I look forward to getting to know you better!

    Love,
    Michelle

  11. You know what DONT GIVE A DARN about others. I use to feel the same way about. Write about whats in the heart and what you want to talk about thats going on in your life thats what my blog is all about read my entry on about the whole BLOGPICKS entry. That I wrote about this month.

     But yeah dont give a crap what others said Ive had my critics on my blog but I put them on comment block and delete them if its bad enough or I just dont like what they're saying.

  14. Good for you Krissy.  I do believe we should be able to say what ever we want here.  Remember, if someone doesn't like what you write, they don't have to read.  Have a good day and take continue to take good care of John!

  15. Let loose.  As you know, Beth and I never let any of our feelings show :o)

  16. I know the feeling. I myself edit my journal to remove any trace of my workplace, finances, and the like. It's hard to keep things to yourself after awhile, but I figure letting it all fly would be much worse. :) Good luck.

  17.     I agree with John. This is your journal. Do what you want with it. I don't read it because I'm looking for you to say something else. I read it because I understand it. Been there, done that. Glad to know someone is out there I can emphasize with. That's emotion enough.

    ....  and then there is me, LOL who often puts too much of my feelings in my journal.  Especially when I am in crisis mode.... which for some reason hits me a bit more than I'd care to admit.  I scare my readers away with my lengthy entries and all my feelings.  Sometimes I wish I could cut back on that a bit.... many many hugs to you and hope you are having a blessed week!  I like how you write and will always enjoy stopping by.

    Krissy, it's your blog.  You should write what you feel like.  If you don't care to delve too personally right now, so what?  It's your choice.  There are no guidelines...it's our thing.  We sometimes like to stay in a comfort zone.  If you feel like leaving it, do it slowly, one step at a time.  If not, I still love reading your entries.  Love you, Chris

  21. I totally 100% agree with John.  I keep telling everyone that at the end of the day the journal is yours and you can write what you wanna write.  If someone doesn't like it, then tough!!!  They don't have to read ;)

    John is so right on this subject! This is YOUR blog you should write what you are feeling.  Personally I can't even imagine you intentionally or even unintentionally hurting anyone ... you don't have it in you. :-)  Write and enjoy.

    This is your blog, and I believe you should be free to be yourself.  After all, you are the reason we love your blog so much!

  25. Hi,
    I'm back online after a couple of years. I had the surgery you have spoke of, I would like to impart some learned exp. I took ativan twice in my life, the second time it came under the name larazapam. Please be very careful, these pill can ruin your life for years. I have exp the most terrible things that can happen to any person because of them. I warn anyone I happen to notice is or has been takeing them. I will tell you as much as I can, doctors never warn you of what will happen if you decide to just stop taking them. I was on these drugs and many more. Once you start down that road to hell and insanity, you will feel more emotional pain than you ever could have imagined. You will end up in a mental hospital, you will get out but it's not over, it takes at least 2 years of more emotional distress and you will wonder if you will survive. I did, but my whole way of life was dystroyed. I had a shoulder injury, then a neck injury, I started on a small amount of pain pill and soma, then ativan was added before I knew it I was on paxil, the pain just got worst. One day I almost died. That was the day I quit all the drugs, I wanted to live more than anything else. I paid a very high price in my life, I lost everything and everyone I loved in my life. As long as I live, I will fight aganist the use of drugs. I take Advil now and many vitamins. They have saved my life. I also exercise as much as I can without any more injury to my already injured mind and body. Research your meds, and take into careful concideration the mind bending results. You won't like it. I am still recovering, I not sure I will ever be the same person again, but at least I know I will be stronger.

  26. Dear Sweet Krissy, my friend:  Keep being youself! Write what you want to!  If you want to share more, do so.  If not don't.  Do what feels right to YOU!  You'll never please everyone, no matter what you do, you know that, don't you.  Love you! Merry
