There is something I've learned from having a blog. There are stories I cannot tell. There are life lessons I've learned that I simply cannot write about.
It's not because I don't want to. I desperately want to tell people about a couple of specific things I have learned about myself - why I have acted certain ways - why I am who I am. But I can't tell the stories because I would hurt other people's feelings.
I want to tell my truth. But the sad fact is that in telling my truth, I am telling someone else's truth that they don't yet want to face, and certainly don't want me telling. And in doing that I would hurt people's feelings. And I don't want to do that.
As a matter of fact, I question whether I should publish this post - for fear that someone might think it's them that I'm talking about.
So the truth that I want to share, that might help some other people (maybe, but it sounds egocentric!), must stay with me until such a time as it can be shared.
I find it frustrating, but I can't force other peoples' journeys. Well, I could, but then I would have to deal with the repercussions.
