Yesterday I wrote a post that seemed to touch a nerve with quite a few people. Exes always drudge up mixed feelings, and a lot of you showed genuine concern for me. I’m here to tell you that I have not lost my damn mind.
Let’s clear a few things up…
I’m not going to be rekindling a romance with my ex. I’m not going to develop a deep bond with my ex. I’m not going to go down an emotional rabbit hole with my ex.
There are approximately 3.5 billion men on Earth. I assure you that I’m focusing my energy on the 3,499,996 men I haven’t already dated. I don’t even watch movies twice.
The whole situation got me thinking about blogging, and what it means to share yourself with the world. You’ll have readers from different parts of the world with different backgrounds, and different experiences. Sometimes this means that people won’t always agree with you.
If you blog long enough, your followers become like your family. You share, they share. You laugh, they laugh. You cry, they cry. You disagree, they disagree.
I love that.
It means I’m making a real connection with you guys every time I post something. I’m glad I have the type of relationship with my readers where they feel they can express their honest opinions, and I can openly receive them.
I feel lucky that the people who show up here always remain respectful. Not just with me, but with each other. I know I don’t really write about controversial things, but this is the internet, a place where people can pick a fight about anything.
I hope that you know I read all of your comments, and I do take them to heart. When you give me advice I listen. When you share your stories I listen. I even listen when you say, “WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO YOUR EX?!”
You’re my WordPress family. Of course I listen.
Thank you to everyone who commented, tweeted and e-mailed me about my post yesterday. I heard you loud and clear. I always do.
