Make the choice...
Admittedly, I wrestle with that sometimes when it comes to blogging. I don't talk about problems so much. I am mindful of that. But, I find I write about them. And of course there are some things I'd never write down anywhere or discuss. Sometimes you see the posts and sometimes I keep them in drafts. I have felt blogging was cathartic at times, certainly appreciated the support when I needed it most, yet ... paradoxically, blogging/writing seems to reinforce what I don't want to think about. Although ...that being said ...I have also found my voice through blogging. And have worked through things. In my past, in real life ...often times I'd remain silent when I should not have been timid. Now I would not. Although, ever the peacemaker that I am ...I still believe you choose your battles and I don't have to prove I'm right about everything. Besides ...I already KNOW that! ;0 I'm kidding! or am I-I-I? I am! ? ;)
Anyway, I think the above comment about "make the choice" is true for a chronic complainer. But, I think if there are important issues that need too come out, to facilitate healing and gain a healthy perspective ...then one should talk with a trusted person. Because to cover up is akin to putting a Bandaid over an open wound, which then festers underneath. Healing can only take place when the wound is cleaned out. So ...there is a time and place ...to talk.
Okay, I'm going in the pool. Not even sure where this came from. I just LOVE the picture. :)
