It has been brought to my attention that several have noticed “sad” posts by me recently on Facebook. Some have interpreted as drama or depressing.
I would like to take this opportunity to let you read some things “straight from the horses mouth”…..
A) sad/Depressing posts are never my intent. Everybody clear?
B) I accept that with social media, comes social perception. I simply choose not to campaign for your belief in me or the intent of my posts. Make it what you will. I will be happy to start letting others know my perceptions of their posts. 🙂 just tell me when you would like me to get started.
C) life is not perfect. Anyone who knows me for more than 5 minutes knows that I am an open book. It would be silly for anyone with more than 4 brain cells to think every single day is hunky dory for anyone. Yes, I try to remain positive most of the time and am happy to make fun of myself for your entertainment….but, I am also not remotely ashamed to admit when things are rough. That doesn’t make me less of a person or less capable of handling things. It makes me human. You read those things however you want but rest assured that your gossipy opinion means nothing to me.
Please reference my May 11th post that stated this: (read carefully so you never have to wonder where I stand on this issue again)
There is absolutely nothing wrong with admitting that you are in a “bad” or “rough” season. There is nothing wrong with saying it publicly either. Doesn’t make you dramatic or anything of the sort. It makes you human. And as long as you are finding refuge in the one that can help you…..and as long as you are taking steps to walk through the season….that doesn’t qualify you as negative or a complainer. It doesn’t mean I’m unhappy (cause I’m so far from it) It’s trying like hell not to let things like stressful work issues, insensitive people in society, and wardrobe malfunctions bring you down further that count Just my two cents. I’m in a “rough” season. And I’m ok with that…….and I will overcome it.
D) if anyone took any time to even start to know what has really been going on, you would discover that I have been in a personal hell lately (don’t worry, you will get that story when the time is right). I chose not to disclose details. I did choose to post things that were helping me along. I figured if it was helping me, why not post it in hopes of helping someone else. I feel like i have been very careful in how I’ve posted…..and quite frankly if you did know what was going on, you would owe me an apology for judging because I assure you that I have handled things like the strong, determined, survivor of a woman that I am.
Thank you America. That is all. Everybody satisfied now? For those of you who have genuinely been concerned, thank you and know that I am going to be just fine. I am actually glad that I have been given more than enough material to write about and hope to catch up enough to start posting those writings soon. Because I am convinced there is someone out there who can benefit from my experience. Plus, if we are being honest, I am a pretty good story teller right? 🙂
For those of you who just needed something to talk about…..you should have plenty of material now. Carry on.
