(BEDM* is my attempt to blog each day of May – just to see if I can.)
So not all of these posts are going to be coherent, or even very long. Some might be. Others will be shorter notes, like this one, because I had another Migraine of Doom(tm) today. (*sigh*)
As I’m going to be writing a lot of these blog posts more like ‘actual’ journal entries, I think it’s okay to open up and be a little more honest. There’s some difficult stuff going down in my personal life. But… what should I say here, in these situations? That’s the problem considering that I’m quite a private person. I don’t often post about very private things and on the rare occasions I have done, I used to do so under the LJ f-lock (meaning only the people I chose could see it). I can’t do those sorts of entries now, though, since moving my blog.
Still, it’s been a rough few weeks. And that has nothing to do with having to move (twice) during the course of this spring & summer. Other things have been stirring. Family stuff. You know, the good stuff. 😉
No matter how many times and how badly certain members of our family hurt us, they are still our family. We still love them. Well, I do, anyway, though I’m sure I speak for many when I say that. I don’t have an amusing blog post to kick of ‘BEDM’ I’m afraid, so all I will say is this: if you are having problems with someone you love, make an effort to reach out to them. Do it now, if you can. At least that way you might not have so many regrets later on down the line. Understanding can be hard won. Forgiveness is difficult. But I’m still reaching out as often as I can – although it feels more like bashing my head against a brick wall, to be honest – but I’m trying.
I don’t know how much longer I will keep trying… but for now I’ll leave the door open.
