Things Unsaid

When a person shares there life online, they start to feel like a friend. I'm guilty of this, reading blogs and feeling like I really know the person. But the truth is, you can only share so much in a very public, open forum. There is so much of life that needs to remind between you and the other persons living it. I've always prided myself on being as open as possible, but sometimes its hard to toe that line properly. There are things I want to share, things I want to get out in the open, but they aren't all mine to share.

While things have been good lately, the end of last year was hard... honestly the last 2 months of 2017 were some of the best and worst in recent memory. There were really beautiful parts, lots of them, truly (Christmas was honestly magic!). But there were also big conversations with friends and family, arguments sometimes, lines drawn in the sand, and hurt feelings. I started going to Al-Anon meetings this month in an attempt to understand some people around me, and take care of myself. And I've been thinking about certain relationships that feel permanently changed.

This is life. Relationships come and go, friendships change, people change. This month seems to be about learning to roll with the changes. I want to be balanced here, and it would feel really good to fully unburden myself. But I'd rather focus on the good as well, and I have to respect the others involved. Here's your little reminder though, that the person behind these posts is human as well, and that with the good comes the bad.


  1. Not sure if this is helpful, but you responded to one of my comments recently with some words i definitely needed to hear and which I've gone back and reread several times since. So just going to throw out there that if you need/want an ear for the more messy stuff life brings, please dont hesitate to reach out. (I live on the other side of the country so no mutual folks, etc to worry about.) Wouldnt say i know much about anything, but i do know how to listen if you want it. Sending you warm wishes and healing thoughts.


Leave me some love!
