Sadly, I have learned the hard way that our perceptions of people aren’t always as accurate as we believe. That’s ok when you are talking about misjudging a mechanic or an acquaintance that you knew in high school. Sure, these people might do something that surprises you, but it rarely has any real impact on your personal life.
I know I am too trusting. My mom has been telling me for decades that I am too quick to trust, too quick to love. I suppose that was ok when it was just me. But, now that my darling boy is a part of every bit of my life, I can’t be as relaxed about the trusting and loving and sharing our hearts. That’s sad.
I don’t want our precious stories, our way of parenting, and the life that we live to be fodder for a good laugh or nasty conversations, and because of this, I have decided to step away from blogging forever. My brief return was lovely. I loved being a part of a network of other kid bloggers who were dedicated and interesting, and I will continue to read and love those blogs.
I am going to leave the blog up until next week, when I have the mental and emotional energy to take it down properly. This weekend has overwhelmed me from so many directions that I am having a hard time seeing myself in all of this mess.
Love and Light to all of you.
