Well I tried one. I really did and I had fun for the most part at first.
A bloggy friend of mine invited me in and that in itself was exciting. But that feeling wore off pretty darn fast.
If there's one lesson I know I need to learn that I haven't so far is to wait wait wait before jumping in.
This is the ONE place I've made the BIGGEST mistakes in my life and which always get me in hot water.
I'm not sure what it is that makes me keep stepping in doodoo when it comes to this particular thing. Believe it or not I think it's the naivite in me. I know what is in my heart and I jump in thinking I am just participating with the rest. But I forget to wait and watch and see how people behave first before I know if they are safe and stable people.
In the last year of my blogging I've "met" and made some awesome friends. Those of you who come around every day accept me and my hot topics and feelings even if you disagree. That's called respect. You never challenge my right to my views, you accept them. I've gotten used to that.
I always seem to forget how emotional people are and that they aren't run by logic. I don't know why I forget I, just know that I do. I forget that people will lie and stick together even when they are completely aware that this is happening just because they do not like someone else or their views.
I'm not even going to claim I don't get emotional sometimes too. Hell I am human.
But one thing I am not is stupid. I know when people are full of shit. I know when people are lying to my face. And those that know me understand why and how I know this.
I'm not into being anyone's punching bag. Why spend time with people that are so caught up in anger and negativity within and amongst themselves and have tried to drag me into their history and make me a target.
I've learned to stay with the positive people.
You can always find those who will find fault with you. That will never ever stop happening for as long as you are alive. The key is to find those that love you and respect you for all your views and feelings and surround yourself with their love.
Here at my blog I've found some of the most amazing people and you've really given me a gift I bet you never realized you gave me. Thank you all for that. I look forward to another fun and amazing year writing here and reading your comments and all your blogs and thoughts too.
