A Public Apology

Friends...  I am a very imperfect person.

I am going to stand by what I said earlier that if you blog publicly, honestly, and regularly you are bound to offend people from time to time.  The thing is, though, that is never my intent.

If you know me well, you know that I measure every word I write, carefully, and I weigh whether or not any particular post is "worth it" before I hit "publish".  Today's post was not worth it.

Let me speak from pain for just a moment.  I recently lost a friendship that happened to be the person to whom I vented most regularly.  In the ensuing months, I have desperately tried to find ways to stop the bleeding.  Although this has led to some very good relationship building, nothing I have tried (to this point) has completely filled this void for me.  This is painfully obvious, because I vented on the world wide web, this morning!  I know better than that.

What I wanted to do was to send the message that we all experience hurt and loss, and the better path to take is one of open, loving, charitable communication.  Instead, I did just the opposite and threw some of my trash out for you all to smell.

I deeply desire to never hurt others.  I have a hard time dealing with it even when I create mild disappointment.  I failed at that today.  I hope tomorrow is better. 

I am sorry.
