I dont anticipate this being an issue with any of the people I have dropped; and if so, please know it is nothing personal towards you at all. To be honest, I couldnt even remember who most of the drops were/are.
NOTE: If you are reading this, and noticed you were dropped, but would like to be added back in; please reply, or send me a message to let me know who you are and why you would like to be added.
Like I said, the motivation was not personal towards any person or group.
This journal is no longer a part of my social media world any longer. Truthfully, it hasn't been for quite a long time.
1st: It is quite simply a sounding board, and a chronicle of events and thoughts that I have bouncing around in my own mind.
2nd: But actually more importantly (at least to me) It is a place for me to share my thoughts and feelings with the love of my life. My wife, Karen.
I am a horrible communicator, when it comes to discussing thoughts, feelings, and aspirations, in a face to face dialog. What I mean, and what I say, rarely come out the same. I also tend to bottle thing in, for fear of rejection or conflict. So... I write it out, and wait...
In any case, I am only aware of possibly one or two contacts within my remaining list, that might EVER possibly read this journal; so it just made sense to clean house.
For the past 5 years or so, Ive struggled to stick to my policy of not censoring my journal entries. I am also trying to reduce the number of entries that I have to go back and either edit or delete. If I think that may be the case, due to an emotional topic, I post it as private and then change its viewable status at a later time.., AFTER I have calmed down and had time to better reflect on the situation.
NOTE: Nearly ALL entries are posted with comments disabled. Im not looking for affirmation, or discussion. (Ive made that mistake in the past, and it was never a good thing for myself, and it was especially not fair to my wife) Im simply sharing, and capturing the thoughts and events of the moment.
(If you REALLY feel a need to comment, I welcome email responses)
