I have heard it said that the problem child never really leaves home. I know that I have occasionally been that child, turning up from time to time, asking for help. But this problem child would like it to be known, that I have listened to the wisdom already imparted to me:
You don’t have to tell everything you know.
Alas, listening to that wisdom and following said advice are two entirely different matters. Because I did not heed that advice, I suffered some consequences regarding my last blog post. I received a response that struck me as much too personal for this widow’s taste from someone entirely unknown to me.
I deleted the response from my personal Facebook page, where I regularly place a link to my Tuesday and Friday blog posts. I mark those blog posts only as being open to anyone to read. I will be rethinking the wisdom of that.
In the meantime, I want to conclude this post by saying that while I appreciate my readers very much, I would also ask my readers to respect me. If any of my readers doubt what I mean, you may read more about it here:
