Sorry

I have said something I shouldn't on here. Sometimes putting personal opinions out into cyberspace is risky. People won't always agree with what I say. Hopefully if they disagree they will speak up, but I don't get many comments here to know that. I don't intentionally set out to cause harm but it seems that I have....

Time to take a break for a little while I think. I wish now that I hadn't said what I said since it has caused offence to somebody else. The post involved has been deleted but the damage has already been done. If the person I've hurt is reading this, then please accept my apology.

This is why I find it hard to open up to other people in real life too. Stuff comes out the wrong way, or someone else says something and I quote it without realising that it is okay for that person to have said it, but it's not okay for me to also say it.

So then I just wish I'd stayed inside my shell. And so I crawl back in there and don't want to come out. Ever.

My mind is already full of other things that I hadn't anticipated having to think about right now. So maybe a break is what I need anyway.

Thanks to those who pop in and comment every so often, I do appreciate your words of encouragement and hopefully I will be back in blogland soon.

I'm so sorry about this. I had a problem with saying something I shouldn't have said on Facebook earlier in the year and it caused untold pain in my life. I hope this is resolved faster.

But please don't stay in your shell! We like you here.

Very sad. I have enjoyed your company here in blogland in recent times. You have a kind and tender heart and a warm sense of humour too. I pray things will sort out in good time.

I've been praying for you Karen - I think many of us have been there - very hard.

Thanks ladies. I will be back...but perhaps a bit less often. Too many topics and trying to be too clever is the way I've gotten into trouble, I think.... A lesson learned. xx

Hey, I'll miss you too. Come back soon - shells are only good for so long.

I don't think I'll be disappearing completely....I can't resist commenting elsewhere!
