This post is from a Courageous Woman’s Blog.
I recently comments on a woman’s blog. I read a lot of her posts and as well as a lot of the comments. I was very, I don’t know how to say it, blunt, or frank, or honest in what I said in my comments (Im sure she wouldn’t have a problem describing it). I felt bad after I posted them because I don’t know her and it was not the kind of post anyone would want to read, but I tried to be honest in a way that might help her even though it might hurt her.
I kind of expected her to tell me to go to hell, but she didn’t. The other thing I king of expected was for her to delete my post rather than approve it. But she approved my comment and then commented back to me. She was direct, but not unkind and not at all out of line, and she didn’t tell me to go to hell either. When you pour your thoughts out in public you open yourself up to the public and this woman is going through a lot of pain and I’m sure my post could not have been a fun one.
She would have been completely justified in any type of response but I actually though her comment was brilliant. She simply commented without any vitriol at all and said at the same time kindly let me know I had my own demons to deal with.
So, If you want to read a blog by a very courageous woman then this is the one to read. It is very honest, but wrenching in its pain, well written, and interesting.
I post it here because I do have my own demons and I am as screwed up as anyone and her point of view and her pain is very different than mine and I think it is a very valid viewpoint. Her’s is clearly a woman’s point of view and she is has a very strong voice. But mainly because it’s compelling reading and not your same sort of everyday blather.
