Thanks for the responses to the last writing.
I tend to be hurting feelings. My boss to the third degree read my bitching and moaning about possible job changes. I can't be sure but I think I actually hurt his feelings ranting as I did. I almost certainly made him at least a little angry.OK, I think I blew it writing the above. Nothing above is factual, just my conjecture about vague impressions over the phone. This is the sort of thing I have to stop putting in here.
I recommend you post your more sensitive material under the "protected" or "private" option. Those of us on your pal's list will be the only ones who see, so if you're worried that one of us will take your venting the wrong way, then un-friend that personThat is definitely the ticket for the future. I need to be, not circumspect, but more selective. I enjoy being open in this journal. I waffled a long time when I first created it as to weather I'd tell all, whedther I'd even edit it, or even make it a work of fiction.
A friend adjured me not to "write to my audience," good advice if I've ever heard it. Such a habit would lose me all my readership. I don't want to do that. I like being open in this journal. I like having people comment. If I lost that I'd be pretty upset. There's been a rash of people bailing lately. I lament the recent loss of sirlance. *sigh* He and I exchanged few words but I definitely felt echoes of my own mind in his writings. I hope he comes back one day.
