The Things I Don’t Blog About

Not everything in life is hunky-dory.  We all have our problems.  I do my best not to blog about my problems, so there are some things I have not yet blogged about.

There is personal illness, family illness, financial problems, death.  There are struggles, things I’ve conquered but have not yet been able to discuss outside of my own head.  There are things I have yet to conquer which I’m still searching for the answer.  I know that, at least for the things that I have conquered, sharing my story would be beneficial to my readers, give strength and hope to those going through similar situations, but I haven’t yet blogged about it.  In some instances, I just haven’t found the right moment, and in others, I’m just not ready to share my story with the world.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m a fairly open person.  But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve held back on sharing my problems with the world. I don’t even write about them in a personal journal.  If they don’t appear here, they don’t appear anywhere.  My closest friends know that if they don’t hear from me and they know I’m not busy, then there is probably something very wrong, and I’m just not talking about it.  Of course, we all have our moments where everything just pours out, even if we don’t want it to.

There is a sense of embarrassment that goes along with a lot of problems.  With illness, we often feel humiliated, alienated.  Why is my body fighting against me?  Why am I different? Why do I have to go through this?  With financial issues, we just don’t want pity.  We fucked up, or maybe we didn’t.  We need help.  Who can I turn to? Nobody.  With death, we all react differently, all feel like nobody can relate. Like nobody has experienced the death of a loved one before.  The truth is that we’ve all gone through these or similar situations.  It’s part of the human condition, the society we live in.  Grief is part of life that we all experience.

It takes a strong person to show weakness and vulnerability. Right now, I’m being strong for the people around me who need me to be strong for them.  I’m still working on being strong for myself.

  1. I know what you mean! There are so many things I wish I could blog about. I either don’t have the courage or I am afraid that my readers who know me in real life will judge me, etc. Sometimes it helps to get it out, but I don’t think the internet is the safest place to share all of your secrets.

  2. Dana Dane, it’s all good and don’t worry about what people think or place judgement against your feelings. Look at it this way, this is exactly what I told to Mike McGlone http://www.michaelmcglone.com lastnight in person. He almost fell out the chair, I said Mike look at me, 1 out of 10 Midget’s got their shit together, so guess what I don’t know about the other 9 i’m good man!!!!!
