I'll Pick Up The Pieces, If I Have To

Have you ever wanted to vent on your blog and couldn't? Was there ever a situation that got so deep under your skin, that you needed to just let loose on your keyboard, but you couldn't? You couldn't because you were unsure if the parties involved read your blog?

Well, that is my current plight.

The frustration and disgust I am feeling is beyond words. In the grand scheme of things, "it" is truly none of my business. I have no say in the matter, however, I feel scared and worried of the possible consequences from, what I feel, is poor judgment of one individual and denial from another. Unfortunately, this lack of common sense won't fall back on these individuals but that of someone else. Someone I deeply care about.

I feel the need to distance myself from those involved because I can not tolerate what I see and hear. I have offered my advice and have gently stated my opinions. All this falls on deaf ears.

I honestly wish I could elaborate. I wish I could find some answers to my dilemma from you, my faithful readers.

But sadly, I can not.

I must respect the privacy of the one who is close to my heart. The other two? I could care less about their "feelings". As far as I'm concerned, one has none; for to feel, you would need a soul.

All I can do is sit by and watch. As I do, I will be hoping for a happy ending.

Can't you "password protect" the post so that you CAN get it off your chest and VENT - with the security of privacy?

Sorry. I started a new blog for this reason.

There are sooooooooo many things I'd love to blog about. People can be UNBELIEVABLE at times.
On the flip side... I like to think that my blog forces me to be more of an optimist because I can't focus on the negative. In a way, it helps me move on to bigger and better things.

Baloney said...

That being said, you have some of our emails if you need some good brainstorming!

I have never been one to hold back. If I stand back and watch the train wreck than i am the one to live with the aftermath. and I am not good at dealing with I should of done this or that.

I started a secret blog for this reason but found I never kept it up. I am in the middle of some family drama b/c of something I wrote on my blog and it got misread and then got blasted and nasty emails ensued! STUPID! I hate it and I can't really blog more about it cuz then it will all continue to go round and round some more! grrrrrr so frustrating!!

Lisa in NJ said...

OH NO this does not sound good. The password post is an idea, or a new unknown blog. See I don't have many readers, and my family knows nothing of my blog, just in case I do password protect just in case

Everyday...every stinkin day I want to vent about things, but I am working to be the bigger person and let them dig their hole deeper and deeper.

I am here if you need to vent, been through it many a times.

Hugs!!

I've got a situation like that going on, too. I'm thinking about taking it to Bad Mother's Basement.

Jen said...

I had something like this happen with me recently. It's kind of still going on actually and I hate it because I KNOW the person involved reads my blog so there's no way I can write about it. It's a killer, you have my sympathy.

Lisa (Jonny's Mommy) said...

I know what you mean. I have those same feelings some days. Things I really want to blog about, but know that I can't because I'm sure someone will read it that I don't want to. Password protect might be a good way to go...but even better -- writing in a journal and stashing it somewhere or talking it over with someone so it isn't in writing at all.

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

Why don't you guest blog on someone else's blog? (You can certainly use mine!) I've done this before and it has helped.

Patois said...

I think Trenches has it right. (And not only because I was going to suggest the same thing.)

Mrs. Schmitty said...

THANK YOU ALL for your comments. I've got to think this through...or better yet...I might just have to let it go. sigh.

P.S. I tried to email each comment separately, but some emails come up as "donotreply".

Bonnie the Boss said...

I have felt this way many times! It does make you want to start another blog, but then that would just take up more freaking time!

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

Oh. Yes. I. Have.
Wished I could. Didn't b/c I knew it would come back to bite me.
Its happened before in an email.
I use the rule, never write it down.
Wish I could help you. It sounds similar to something I have gone through, reading between the lines. That person knows, but isn't ready to accept the truth. They will. One day.
WHat comes around goes around.
